Just as he was graduating and leaving UWM over the summer, Eduard Storm won the Richard Perlman Prize for an Outstanding Paper in Labor Economics. His winning paper was “Task Specialization and the Native-Foreign Wage Gap: Evidence from Worker-level Data.”
Eduard came to the economics department as part of our exchange with Giessen University, and is now a visiting assistant professor at Carleton College in Minnesota. You can read an interview with him here and a description of his award winning paper here.
As always, your contribution helps remember Richard Perlman’s contribution to the Department and helps support emerging scholars in labor economics. https://uwm.edu/economics/give/
