Martina is a Postdoctoral Scholar at IZA and a perspective Assistant Professor at the University of Nottingham. She graduated from MIT in June 2023.
Martina is a labor economist interested in gender and labor market institutions. She studies the causes of the motherhood penalty in the labor market: in her current projects with HILDA data she analyzes the impact of the Australian 2009 Fair Work Act on work arrangements and maternal labor supply, both from an occupational structure perspective and from an intrahousehold bargaining perspective.
In her second strand of research, she investigates how employment protection and collective bargaining shape firms’ choices and impact labor market inequality.
