Pedro S. Martins is Professor of Economics at Nova SBE. He earned his PhD in Economics from the University of Warwick in 2004. Pedro is a labour economist, having published in several leading journals, including Journal of Labor Economics, American Economic Journal (Macro), European Economic Review, Industrial Relations, and British Journal of Industrial Relations. Some of these studies have been supported by research grants in which he was principal investigator, totalling over €1m since 2015, and draw on collaborations with international organisations, including the European Commission, ILO, IMF, OECD, and World Bank. His approach to research is shaped by his experience in the Government of Portugal (2011-13), when he was responsible for a number of major reforms. This experience influenced his policy and research work around social dialogue and training, and his current work as editor of the IZA Journal of Labor Policy.
