I am a social scientist with background in economics (PhD) and public administration (MA). I study the impact of technology on the labor market, skills, migration and diasporas. I am interested in development, labor economics, policy and economic sociology. I am currently a senior research fellow at the Growth Lab at Harvard University, a research scientist at the Complexity Science Hub in Vienna, and a visiting professor at the Central European University in Vienna.
Our paper "Mental health concerns prelude the Great Resignation: Evidence from Social Media" with Maria del Rio-Chanona, Alejandro Hermida-Carrillo, Melody Sepahpour-Fard, Luning Sun, and Renata Topinkova will be coming soon in EPJ Data Science.
My team and I won the DRUID 2023 Best Paper Award for the paper "Eight Decades of Changes in Occupational Tasks, Computerization and the Gender Pay Gap", with Shreyas Gadgin Matha, James McNerney, Andre Assumpcao, Dario Diodato, and Frank Neffke.
We analyze whether the closing of the gender pay gap in the U.S. happened because of technological change or despite of it, using a unique new longitudinal dataset of detailed job content, socio-economic data and labor market outcomes.
