Dr. Paul Gaggl joined the Belk College of Business after receiving his PhD from the University of California at Davis in 2012. His current research concentrates on the distributional effects of technology adoption, particularly concerning the heterogenous effects on different types of workers and the distribution of income between labor and capital. In this context, his most recent work has focused on the labor market and welfare implications of adopting information and communication technology (ICT) in the US, the UK, and around the world. Some of this work was recently featured in the Centre for Economic Policy Research's (CEPR) influential policy column VOX. He is currently involved in a series of projects studying similar issues related to electricity adoption in the early 20th century.
