Giuseppe Moscarini named
Henry Kohn Associate Professor

Giuseppe Moscarini, newly named as the Henry Kohn Associate Professor of Economics, specializes in the teaching of macroeconomics and focuses his research on labor markets, labor turnover and reallocation, and on Bayesian learning, a model to describe how people modify their beliefs about the world in light of their experience.

He will hold the Kohn Associate Professorship through June of 2005.

At Yale, where he has taught since 1996, Moscarini teaches courses in advanced macroeconomics, macroeconomic theory, and optimization methods, among others.

His published articles include "The Optimal Level of Experimentation," "Excess Worker Reallocation," "Price Competition for an Informed Buyer," "Social Learning in a Changing World," "Equilibrium Search and Labor Market Policies" and "Economic Models of Learning." His work has been published in such professional journals as Econometrica, Review of Economic Studies and the Journal of Economic Theory, among others.

A native of Rome, Moscarini earned his undergraduate degree at the Università degli Studi di Roma and then served in the Italian Air Force. After completing his service, he came to the United States to pursue his Ph.D. at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. His doctoral thesis was on the topic "Worker Heterogeneity and Job Search in the Flow Approach to Labor Markets: A Theoretical Analysis." While in graduate school, Moscarini won a dissertation scholarship from the Banca d'Italia.

Moscarini joined the Yale faculty in 1996 after completing his doctorate. Since coming to Yale, he has also been a visiting scholar at New York University, Tilburg University and University College, London. His research has been supported by a Junior Faculty Sabbatical Fellowship from Yale, research grants from the Yale Social Science Research Fund and an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Research Fellowship.

The Yale economist has been an invited lecturer at universities and professional meetings throughout the United States and in Europe. He will participate in this year's Society of Labor Economics Conference and the Gerzensee International Macroeconomics Conference, among other conferences and seminars.
