Kurt Lavetti


I am an Associate Professor in the Department of Economics at Ohio State University, and Research Fellow at the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA).


I am currently on leave for the 2020-21 academic year.


My research in health and labor economics focuses on empirical, policy-relevant questions related to the design and value of health insurance plans, the estimation of compensating wage differentials, the determinants of job mobility and impacts of non-competition contracts, and physician labor markets and organizations.
