Personal profile

Personal information

Sabien Dobbelaere (1977) is an Associate Professor at the Department of Economics Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam and Research Fellow at Tinbergen Institute (TI, Amsterdam) & Institute of Labor Economics (IZA, Bonn).

Research

My fields of specialization are applied microeconometrics and applied microeconomics. Two central themes are firm production and pricing, and labor-management relations. The observed gap between an input’s marginal product and its measured payment combined with the ubiquity of firm-level productivity variation and persistence are empirical regularities that have shaped my research agenda. Being driven by a curiosity in real world phenomena and highly valuing the empirical validation of economic models, I employ various quantitative methods and a wide variety of micro-level datasets in European, Latin American and Asian countries in my empirical investigations.

I have received invitations for presentation at various high-quality conferences and have been visiting CREST (Centre de Recherche en Économie et Statistique, Paris), ZEW (Mannheim), Keio University (Tokyo) and Banque de France (Paris).
