Martina Uccioli joined IZA as a Postdoctoral Scholar in September 2023. She holds a PhD from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Martina's research spans two areas of labor economics: gender gaps and labor market institutions. She studies the causes of the motherhood penalty in the labor market: her current work focuses on the role of work arrangements and intrahousehold bargaining in explaining maternal labor supply. In her second strand of research, she investigates how labor market institutions, such as employment protection legislation and collective bargaining, alter firms’ incentives and technological choices and affect inequality in the labor market.
