Martina Uccioli


I am a Postdoctoral Scholar at IZA. In September 2024 I will join the School of Economics at the University of Nottingham as Assistant Professor. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from MIT

I am a labor economist interested in gender gaps and labor market institutions. My first area of research studies the causes of the motherhood penalty in the labor market. In my second strand of research, I investigate 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.
