People Dr Omar Guerrero
James Martin Fellow, The Institute for New Economic Thinking at the Oxford Martin School
My interests lie in the intersection of economics, networks, and computation. I am currently studying labour dynamics as a process where people flow throughout the economy by moving from one firm to another. I study these flows by looking at detailed data about employment histories of each individual and every firm in entire economies. Using this information, I construct networks of firms in order to map the roads that people take throughout their careers. This allows to study labour markets at an unprecedented fine-grained level of detail. I employ agent-based computing methods to understand how economic shocks and policies alter labour flows, which eventually translate into unemployment and other related problems.
I am also a member of the CABDyN Complexity group at the Saïd Business School and a Junior Research Fellow at Wolfson College. I enjoy interdisciplinary research and look forward to hearing about new ideas for potential collaborative work.
