Professor of Economics
Ph.D., Economics, University of Western Ontario, 2004
Professor Manovskii is also Associate Editor of Macroeconomic Dynamics, Research Affiliate at the Center for Economic Policy Research, a Faculty Research Fellow at the National Bureau of Economic Research, and a Research Fellow at the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) in Bonn. His research encompasses the fields of macroeconomics and labor economics, focusing on the quantitative study of labor markets (employment, unemployment, vacancies, human capital accumulation and destruction, the determination of wages, worker mobility across jobs and occupations, and the behavior of these variables over the business cycle) using dynamic general equilibrium models developed mostly in the field of macroeconomics. These calibrated models are used to study the effects of policies, such as progressive taxes, employer-based health insurance system, and government worker training programs.
