Ylenia Brilli




I am a labor economist, specialized in family, education and health.
I have joined the University of Gothenburg in September 2015, after a Max Weber fellowship at the European University Institute. In March 2013, I obtained a PhD in Economics from the Catholic University Milan. During my PhD, I spent a visiting period at New York University and I worked as a research assistant for the Center for Household, Income, Labor and Demographic Economics (CHILD) at Collegio Carlo Alberto.

My research interests lie in labor and family economics and applied micro-econometrics. My current research focuses on the estimation of both structural and reduced form econometric models, and deals with the effects of non-parental and family investments, as well as educational policies, on children's health and development, and adolescents' behavior.
