Research

I am a macroeconomist and my research uses a combination of theory and (micro) data to shed light on questions related to labor market dynamics. My work focuses on household and firm heterogeneity as well as market imperfections. In my job market paper, I propose a theory of the labor share that emphasizes the interaction between labor market imperfections and productivity dispersion.
