Daniele Paserman received his B.A. in economics and statistics from the Hebrew University in 1993, and his Ph.D. in economics from Harvard University in 2000. He is currently an Associate Professor at Boston University, a Senior Lecturer at Hebrew University (on leave), a Research Affiliate of CEPR, and a Faculty Research Fellow of the NBER.
His current research focuses on the economics of immigration: how immigration affects the labor market outcomes of native workers and the investment behavior of firms, and how the initial environment affects immigrants’ human capital accumulation and other economic outcomes. Other research has also looked at the relationship between rising wage inequality and declining marriage rates; at the implications of time-inconsistent preferences for job search behavior and for policies aimed at reducing unemployment; at the effect of corruption and openness on macroeconomic outcomes; and at the dynamics of violence in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
He joined IZA as a Research Fellow in November 2003.
