Research and Administrative Work

Professor Herzog maintains teaching and research interests in regional and labor economics. His recent publications have investigated various labor market dimensions of� transition in Central European countries.� These include studies of:� (1) how plant scale and agglomeration erected under central planning effect current employment growth; and (2) the incidence of involuntary job loss.� Other work has addressed regional structural impediments to reemployment in the U.S., the job search outcomes of trade-displaced U.S. workers, and the effects of ethnicity on job tenure in New Zealand.

Dr. Herzog was a recent Senior Fulbright Scholar in New Zealand, and serves on the editorial boards of Journal of Regional Science, Environmental and Resource Economics, and Review of Regional Studies.
