I am a macroeconomist with interests in the labour market and its dynamics. In my research, I focus on search and matching models with worker heterogeneity, the effects of unemployment insurance (UI) policy on the labour market in general equilibrium, and consumption-saving decisions. In my job market paper, I investigate the impact of UI extensions in the US on the incidence of long-term unemployment and on the unemployment duration. In my other research, I analyse the effects of UI extensions on the cyclical properties of the labour productivity, and, in a separate work, I study how workers smooth consumption amidst labour market shocks.
