research overview

  • I specialize in using linked administrative data to identify and estimate 1) flexible production functions in which inputs feature a network structure (e.g. teachers and students, or workers with overlapping shifts), and 2) equilibrium models of sorting and two-sided matching. My first few applications involved teacher productivity and teacher and student sorting across schools, while my current work also exploits linked employer-employee data to estimate two-sided matching models featuring multidimensional worker and firm heterogeneity. These latter applications focus on the incidence across locations and worker skill levels of alternative local labor demand policies and international trade policies.
