Moscarini appointed Philip Golden Bartlett Professor of Economics
Giuseppe Moscarini, an internationally recognized macroeconomist and expert on labor markets and inflation, has been appointed the Philip Golden Bartlett Professor of Economics, effective July 1.
He is a member of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS) in the Department of Economics. He also has an appointment with the Yale School of Management.
A member of the Yale faculty since 1996, his work has advanced our understandings of the job search process, unemployment, turnover, wage dynamics, and inequality. His research encompasses macroeconomics and information economics, with an emphasis on pricing, inflation, and monetary policy, as well as on labor markets. He is a research associate of the National Bureau of Economic Research, where he co-chairs the working group on Aggregate Labor Markets, and a Fellow of the Econometric Society.
Moscarini published his research in top international academic journals, including American Economic Review, Econometrica, Review of Economic Studies, Journal of Monetary Economics, Journal of Economic Theory, and Journal of Labor Economics. His work has led to new insights on a range of questions, including those pertaining to the economics of information, the engines of job creation, and, most recently, the connection between employment reallocation, wage growth, and inflation. He is a former co-editor of Theoretical Economics and associate editor of the American Economic Review and the Journal of Economic Theory.
In recognition of the impact of his work, Moscarini has held grants from the National Science Foundation and was an Alfred P. Sloan Fellow. He held the Henry Kohn Associate Professor chair at Yale, and has given invited keynote addresses at many international conferences. He has held visiting positions at New York University, the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the Federal Reserve Bank of Philadelphia, and the Georgetown University Center of Economic Research.
At Yale, he teaches courses in macroeconomics at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and has supervised the dissertations of more than 30 doctoral students. Since 2007, he has chaired the department’s Ph.D. job placement committee. He is co-director of the Macroeconomics Research Program at the Cowles Foundation for Economic Research. In 2020, he played in integral role in developing the FAS’s COVID academic continuity plans: he first chaired the task force on contingency planning for lecture courses and then served on the Provostial Academic Continuity Committee.
Moscarini earned his Ph.D. from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and a laurea in Economia e Commercio from the Università degli Studi di Roma La Sapienza.
