Giorgia Menta is a post-doctoral researcher at the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER).
In 2021, she completed her PhD in Economics at the University of Luxembourg. Her research interests lie in the field of applied microeconomics, with a focus on the economics of gender, health, education, and the labour market. Her research has been published in highly ranked peer-reviewed international outlets, such as the Journal of Health Economics and the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization. During her PhD, she developed an interest in social-science genomics, that is the integration of genetic data into social-science research. Recently, she has been working on how the genetic determinants of mental ill-health can interact with policy and family environment, contributing to the persistence of health and socio-economic inequalities.
