Personal profile

Research interests

My research focuses on applied microeconometrics, labour economics and the evaluation of public policies. My current work covers in particular the following topics: a first strand of research focuses on the empirical evaluation of reforms and incentive structures in social insurance and of labour market policies. Specifically, I assess the effects of instruments like job search requirements, monitoring and sanctions, different types of labour market programs and of unemployment insurance reforms on job finding and earnings outcomes. A second topic is the empirical analysis of job search behaviour, including issues like the role of reservation wage building, search effort decisions and of social networks. Third, I investigate in my research the behavioural foundations of labour market related decisions (by means of survey evidence), particularly of the role of biased beliefs, expectations and overconfidence. Fourth, I am in general interested in studying empirically the interplay of policy and individual behaviour in different areas of public policy.
