Luca Fumarco is a postdoctoral fellow at the Murphy Institute and Department of Economics at Tulane University. He received his Ph.D. in economics from Linnaeus University in 2015. Prior to coming to Tulane, he worked at the research division of the national statistical institute of Luxembourg, STATEC Research. His research focuses on labor and education economics, and investigates two broad topics: discrimination in the marketplace, and the effects of within-cohort age differences on well-being, education, and labor outcomes. Currently, he is working on a project on discrimination in access to mental health care.
