Catherine Barrera's research focuses on the role of economic environment in shaping careers, with a particular emphasis on inter-firm mobility and skill specialization. She is interested in the effects of a changing marketplace on the relationships between organizations and individuals given that both sides of the labor market act strategically. Her current research examines the impact of uncertainty over labor demand on agent-task specialization and the use of independent contractors. Barrera earned a PhD in business economics from Harvard University, an MSc in applicable mathematics from the London School of Economics, and a BA in communication studies from Northwestern University.
