Personal profile


Claudio Labanca is lecturer in the Department of Economics. He joined the department in 2017 after completing his Ph.D. in Economics at the University of California, San Diego. His research falls at the intersection of labor economics and public economics and it covers a variety of topics, including wage and productivity differentials across firms, the effects of taxation on the supply of labor and the impact of migration on local labor markets. In his work he pays particular attention to the role played by the interaction between worker and firm behavior in shaping demand and supply of labor, wages and productivity. To estimate these interactions, he applies the latest econometric techniques to detailed matched employer-employee data. 

Claudio is a founding member of SoDa Labs, an empirical research laboratory associated with Monash University's Department of Economics and Department of Econometrics in the Monash Business School. SoDa Labs applies new tools from data science, machine learning, and beyond to answer social science questions using alternative and big data.
