My current position is the Richard Meese Chaired Professor of Economics at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I am a labor economist who has published work on wage determination, cyclical employment and wage fluctuations, and migration. My current research is mainly focused on four topics: 1) the social costs of restrictions on international migration, 2) cross-country differences in lifetime earnings profiles, 3) the interaction between schooling and migration decisions, and 4) the relationship between health and retirement decisions.
