My research is in the area of applied microeconomics and covers topics in labour and personnel economics and managerial and business economics, such as wage determination and employees' motivation, human capital development, HRM and firm performance, and immigration and diversity management. The core theme underlying my research is understanding the processes of development and management of human resources and their implications for economic performance and productivity at the individual and organisation level.
