Research interests: The effects of technological and institutional change on wage inequality
Matthias' current research investigates how technological and institutional change jointly influence wage inequality. In particular, he is interested in the potential of labour market institutions to contain rising inequality in advanced economies facing the effects of technological change.

His research is funded by the Barnett House-Nuffield Scholarship.
