CV and bio
Dr. Lars Vilhuber holds a Ph.D. in Economics from Université de Montréal, Canada. He has worked in academic and government research positions, and collaborates with government and statistical agencies in Canada, the United States, and Europe. His research interests include the dynamics of the labor market. Often working with highly detailed longitudinally linked data, he has investigated the effects and causes of mass layoffs, worker mobility, and the interaction between housing and the local labor market. He has gained extensive expertise on the data needs of economists and other social scientists, having been involved in the creation and maintenance of several data systems designed with analysis, publication, replicability, and maintenance of large-scale code bases in mind. His research in statistical disclosure limitation, including through data enclaves, is a direct consequence of his interest in making data available to the broadest possible audience. His involvement in efforts to make social sciences more reproducible and transparent draws on these many diverse experiences.
He is presently on the faculty of the Department of Economics at Cornell University, Executive Director of ILR’s Labor Dynamics Institute, and affiliated with the U.S. Census Bureau. He is the Data Editor of the American Economic Association, Managing Editor of the Journal of Privacy and Confidentiality, and on advisory boards of restricted-access data centers in France, Canada, and the United States.
