“Are We Yet Sick of New Technologies? The Unequal Health Effects of Digitalization”

Melanie Arntz is Deputy Head of ZEW’s Research Unit “Labour Markets and Social Insurance” and Leibniz Professor of Labour Economics at Heidelberg University. Her research focusses on the question how changing labour market conditions such as an increasing digitalization of work tasks and the proceeding international division of production processes affects labour markets, employment and wage outcomes. She is also interested in the dynamics of individual labour market careers in response to these phenomena and the impact of regional labour market conditions on these dynamics.
