Alessandro Tondini is an applied micro-economist working on topics in both labor and development economics. He has a Ph.D. from the Paris School of Economics, obtained under the supervision of Luc Behaghel. His thesis revolves around the interaction of public policies and segmented labor markets in middle-income countries. In particular, he studies the long-term labor market effects of unconditional cash transfer programs in South Africa, with a focus on liquidity constraints during job search and job quality. His research also looks at the effect of reforms of public, means-tested pension systems in labor markets with a large informal sector.
His ongoing projects include the evaluation of some active labor market policies in France, in collaboration with the French Employment Agency. During the Max Weber fellowship, he will carry on several projects, including a study of how providing workers with information about unopened vacancies affects their job search prospects.
During his time at the Paris School of Economics, he taught applied econometrics to first year graduate students. Prior to his Ph.D., he also worked part-time at the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
