Emanuele Dicarlo

PhD Candidate in Economics

University of Zurich


I am a PhD student in Economics at the University of Zürich under the supervision of professor Josef Zweimüller. I hold a MSc in Economics from Bocconi University (2015) and a BSc in Economics from Bocconi University (2012).

I am a labor economist, with interests in social security, migration, and their interaction with firms in the labor market. I have an expertise in working with large administrative datasets which are the core data source of my projects.

Starting Spring 2021, I will join the research department of the Bank of Italy as a Research Expert. I am a Research Affiliate at IZA.

In my job-market paper, I study the consequences of a unique quasi-experiment where Italian firms are affected by an exogenous negative labor supply shock of migration outflows from Italy to Switzerland. You can read more here.
