Economic Analysis | Senior Research Officer
Dr. Adele Bergin is a Senior Research Officer at the ESRI. Her research interests are in labour economics and macroeconomics. In labour economics, she has a particular interest in labour market transitions, mismatch in the labour market and migration.

In macroeconomics, she is currently working on developing a new macro-econometric structural model, COSMO (COre Structural MOdel of the Irish economy), that will be used for forecasting and policy analysis. She also maintains the HERMES structural macroeconomic model of the Irish economy. She is also responsible for a demographic model which has been used in preparing population and labour force projections and has also been used in studies to examine the long-term implications of population ageing on the public finances.

She completed a B.A. in Economics in Trinity College Dublin and a M.Sc. in Economics and Econometrics in the University of Bristol. In 2011 she completed a Ph.D at NUI Maynooth on job mobility and measurement error.
