Isa Kuosmanen receives the 2022 GSEM Young Researcher Award
Dr. Isa Kuosmanen was selected as the winner of the 2022 GSEM Young Researcher Award. The prize was created in 2019 to promote research within the Geneva School of Economics and Management.
The annual award is presented to a young researcher affiliated with the GSEM who has made a significant research contribution. The award recognizes the quality and the impact of the research in the fields of economics, econometrics, finance, management, statistics, and information systems. The Review Committee is chaired by the Vice Dean for Research, Professor Salvatore Di Falco, and is made up of the members of the GSEM Honorary Council.
Dr. Isa Kuosmanen received the award for the article "Labor Market Effects of Open Borders: Evidence from the Finnish Construction Sector after EU Enlargement", forthcoming in the Journal of Human Resources. Co-authored with Jaakko Meriläinen, the study looks at what happened in the Finnish construction sector after the eastern enlargement of the European Union. The enlargement differentially exposed workers in different regions and occupations in Finland to a foreign workforce, which consisted mostly of posted workers. These are workers who are employed and live in their home country but work in another member country.
Dr. Kuosmanen holds a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Fribourg, Switzerland, and a Ph.D. in Social Sciences from the University of Helsinki, Finland. She has contributed to the research undertaken at the GSEM's Institute of Economics and Econometrics in her role as a Postdoctoral Researcher.
