Theodore Papageorgiou is an Assistant Professor of Economics at Boston College. He was previously an Assistant Professor of Economics at Penn State University and at McGill University, a Visiting Assistant Professor of Economics at Princeton University and a Visiting Scholar at Harvard University. In his research he has examined both theoretically, as well as empirically, occupational mobility, the efficiency of the matching process between job-seekers and firms, the role of occupational choice in understanding agglomeration economies and the interaction between internal and external labor markets. In addition, he uses the tools of search theory in other environments, beyond labor markets, such as the matching of ships and cargos in bulk shipping.
Papageorgiou received a B.A. in Economics from the University of Athens, Greece in 2002, and an M.A., M.Phil, and Ph.D. all in Economics from Yale University in 2003, 2005, and 2008 respectively.
