Dr Jeisson Cardenas-Rubio

Academic profile

Jeisson Cárdenas-Rubio is a labour economist who joined IER as a Research Fellow in January 2020, after recently completing his PhD at Warwick University. Prior to his PhD studies, he was employed as a senior consultant, including for the World Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), the National Administrative Department of Statistics (DANE) and the Ministry of Labour in Colombia, on topics related to skills and occupational change, Big Data and public policy design. His doctoral research investigated to what extent a web-based model of skill mismatches can be developed for countries where the information regarding the labour market is relatively scarce. Jeisson's current research interests focus on analysing Big Data sources and development of labour market information for career guidance, skill shortages identification and labour market forecasting. His interests in these areas span local, national and international aspects.
