Most of my recent research concerns the role of information in labor markets.

 

Some topics I have studied include: How does uncertainty affect workers' job search decisions? How are wages set when employers have private information? Does news about the future explain fluctuations in employment? Can fears of prolonged joblessness be self-fulfilling? How do expectations about job loss affect measurement of the welfare cost of unemployment?
