Thomas Breda is associate professor at Paris School of Economics, full-time junior researcher at CNRS, and director of the programme Employment and Labour at the Institute for Public Policy. He has graduated from Ecole normale supérieure (Paris) and holds a PhD from Ecole des hautes études en sciences sociales (EHESS). His research in labor economics aims at developing new strategies to measure inequalities or discriminations and their social and institutional causes. He is interested in three types of institutions in the broadest sense: gender norms, worker representation systems, and labor taxation. Some of his original contributions focus on the collective representation of employees. They uncover new forms of discriminations; e.g., against union representatives in firms having industrial disputes, or against the gender that is numerically dominant in a given academic field. His research is published both as articles in international journals such as Science, PNAS or the Economic Journal and as books or articles in French.
