Research title: Automation Technologies and Low-Skill Labour Supply: Evidence from Labour Markets in the UK

Research Summary

This paper will use micro-level data to explore the impacts of automation technologies on low-skill labour supply. By conducting static nonlinear panel data model based on UK worker-level data about individual working hours and task intensities, I can investigate the impacts of technological shocks on labour market outcomes in the UK.

Moreover, this will first follow semi-parametric approach to make panel data econometric analysis and use commuting time to instrument endogenous technological change. Research about technological change on low-skill workers related to some specific policies will be beneficial to analysis on labour supply in the UK.
