Giovanni Righi

Graduate Student Researcher
University of California - Los Angeles

    Giovanni Righi's research is focused on understanding the pattern of racial income inequality across the United States. This work leverages the LEHD in the FSRDC to analyze how firm wage premiums and local labor market racial segregation on racial income inequality contribute to variation in income across racial groups. Next year, Giovanni will be affiliated with the UW School of Public Health and the Veterans’ Affairs Administration as a Health Services Research and Development Postdoctoral Scholar. He will use that position to measure the impact of the various programs that have been so effective in dramatically reducing Veteran homelessness in the last decade. After that, he plans to pursue an MD, and with some luck, do so at the UW.
