Sharon Kardia: Genomics in the Health & Retirement Study

Dr. Krolikowski’s research focuses on the consequences of job displacement. His dissertation proposes a successful explanation for the persistent earnings losses of displaced workers, and suggests that the driving mechanism may be partially responsible for the slow adjustment of unemployment and job openings after an aggregate downturn. He has also analyzed the post-displacement earnings experience of different worker sub-groups using survey data (Panel Study of Income Dynamics) and found remarkable uniformity. His current research addresses the interaction between displacement, job search and (early) retirement.
