About Me

I am a Postdoc at the Stanford Digital Economy Lab.

Dissertation Title: Micro-Level Perspectives on the Future of Work – New Evidence on Workers’ Skill Returns and Firms’ Skill Demand

Research Interest

My research delves into the future of work, focusing on various aspects related to the supply and demand of skills and the evolving hiring practices of firms. I use big, unstructured data like self-collected apprenticeship plan texts and online job postings as well as administrative data to estimate returns to skills and to investigate recent labor market trends like remote work or skills-based hiring.
