People Dr Omar Guerrero

James Martin Fellow, The Institute for New Economic Thinking at the Oxford Martin School

Research Fellow

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.
