Gaspare_Tortorici

I joined the Chair of Labour Economics and New Political Economy at the Alfred-Weber-Institut (University of Heidelberg) as a Post-Doctoral Fellow in September 2018. My research interests hinge on migration, labour economics, economic history and, more generally, applied microeconomics.

I have pursued my PhD in Economics at Trinity College Dublin - while being an Irish Research Council Postgraduate Scholar. My thesis revolves around the age of mass migration and spans across about 70 years, from the 1850s to the early 1920s. Feel free to have a look here for the details.

I speak Italian, English, French and a - to a lesser extent! - German. I like coding languages too: R, Markdown, Python, HTML, CSS, LaTeX, STATA, Linux command line, and regular expressions. If you’re intereseted, there are a few fun snippets and chunks in the dedicated section of this website. Beside economics, I like photography, cycling and playing guitar.
