Research Interests

Labor economics, the economics of disability, applied econometrics

Monica GalizziÍs field of specialization is labor economics. She also has interests in the areas of health and behavioral economics. Her research has focused on labor mobility and on the socio-economic outcomes of occupational injuries. She has written on the role played by wages, workersÍ status, career perspectives and gender in explaining differences in labor market attachment. She has also published on the return-to-work patterns of injured workers and on the different earnings and wealth losses experienced by male and female injured workers. Some of her recent research has focused on the problem of underreporting of workplace injuries and on the challenges of using both quantitative and qualitative data. Her current research is focusing on the relationship between occupational injuries and personal bankruptcy as well as on the effect that an occupational accident has on spousesÍ and childrenÍs well being.
