    Pawel Krolikowski is a postdoctoral research fellow at the University of Michigan's Population Studies Center. His research interests are primarily in macroeconomics, labor economics, and applied microeconomics. His dissertation examines theory and data pertaining to workers experiencing involuntary job losses (displacements). In the first two chapters, he uses a search model over match-quality to capture the magnitude and persistence of displaced worker earnings losses, and explores how the dynamics of displaced workers contribute to aggregate phenomena, such as unemployment and job openings over the business cycle. In chapter three, he investigates the standard empirical approach to measuring the earnings losses of displaced workers using the PSID, and finds that this approach systematically over-estimates the earnings losses attributed to displacement. While a postdoc, he has started a project investigating the effect of local ties on the outcomes of displaced workers, and another project that embeds search and matching frictions in a general equilibrium international trade model with heterogeneous firms. Prior to starting his Ph.D., Pawel received his Bachelor of Arts in Economics, as well as his Bachelor of Science in Mathematical and Computational Science, from Stanford University.
