Getinet Haile is an Associate Professor of Industrial Economics at the Department of Industrial Economics, Nottingham University Business School, Nottingham University. He has a PhD in economics from the School of Economics at the same University and has a long career in academia and policy research. His main research interests are applied labour economics, workplace well-being, issues of labour market adjustment and mobility, development labour economics and programme evaluation. Getinet has worked on several large-scale quantitative evaluation and/or labour market projects in the past including the evaluation of the School Meals programme of the UN-WFP in Ethiopia, the labour market transition of older workers in the UK and the evaluation of several active labour market programmes of the UK government such as the evaluation of the Incapacity Benefit reform pilots. He has recently completed ESRC funded research projects that sought to examine if extending working life may have implications on the well-being of older workers and if workplace demographic diversity has implications on worker well-being, both of which were UK-based studies. As well as publishing in economics and industrial relations journals, Getinet has taken active part in several prestigious international conferences recently including the SoLE (US), EALE (Europe) and IZA-World Bank conferences.
He joined the IZA as a Research Fellow in January 2009.
