Programme Leader. He is also a member of the Hull University
Business School's Learning, Teaching and Assessment Committee
After graduating from the University of Hull in 1989 with first
class honours in his BSc(Econ) in Economics and Econometrics, Dr
Nolan began his involvement in economics research almost
immediately afterwards as Research Assistant to Dr John Treble,
based at the University of Hull and working for 14 months during
1989-90 on a project studying workplace absenteeism. The project
was funded by a large UK manufacturing firm.
Dr Nolan's doctoral thesis, awarded by the University of York in
1995, was entitled: "Multiple-spell absences under an
experience-rated sickpay scheme". It was funded for three years by
the Economic and Social Research Council, and was supervised by Dr
Chris Orme - who was promoted to a Chair in Econometrics at the
University of Manchester in 1995, and subsequently held the role of
Head of Economics there for the period 2004-2007.
Dr Nolan's research interests can be broadly described as being
in labour economics and applied microeconometrics. He is willing to
consider supervising research students in these areas - especially
on topics in the fields of absenteeism from the workplace, duration
modelling of labour market states, and the economics of earnings,
employment and self-employment.
