Michael Coelli

 

Mick joined the Department of Economics as a Lecturer in October 2005 after completing his PhD in Economics at the University of British Columbia earlier that year. He completed a Bachelor of Commerce (Economics Honours) degree at the University of New South Wales in 1990, and obtained a Master of Arts (Economics) degree from the University of British Columbia in 2000.

He was promoted to Senior Lecturer in May 2010 and to Associate Professor in January 2020.

Mick's work focuses on empirical research in both labour economics and the economics of education. He has analyzed the relationship between individual education levels and employment earnings in Australia, the polarisation of occupations in Australia, earnings inequality and the effects of technology and trade on local labour markets. He has investigated the role of family background in determining the post-secondary education attendance of individuals, the effect of school principals on the education outcomes of youth, and the effect of high school graduation on the welfare recipiency of young adults. Mick has also investigated the role of occupation differences on the gender earnings gap in Australia and the US, plus the drivers of occupation differences by gender.
