Zsolt Csáfordi is a PhD candidate at Erasmus School of Economics and Tinbergen Institute. Since September 2017, he works on a research project that aims to disentangle the effects of skill-related labor flows and agglomeration economies on firm performance and regional development. Does an embedding in a skilled region, city or sector indeed lead to competitive performance advantages, and which types of firms and sectors select themselves into this agglomeration process? To what extent are the effects of agglomeration economies and regional endowments maintained when also controlling for the structure of actual labor flows? How does technological relatedness influence labor market processes, such as the sorting behavior of workers? How do these effects differ by geographical characteristics?
