SCI Assistant Professor Morgan Frank's research was recently published in the journal Nature Communications. The study, titled "Universal resilience patterns in labor markets," explores the connection between the economic resilience of cities and the connectivity within a city's job network. The employment data examined in the study indicate that a higher rate of jobs with overlapping skill requirements allows a city to better withstand labor shocks, which can lead to lower unemployment and higher wages. The study is co-authored with Estaban Moro, Alex Pentland, Alex Rutherford, Manuel Cebrian, and Iyad Rahwan. Nature Communications is a multidisciplinary journal that publishes articles in all fields of natural sciences.
