Olivier Godechot is an economic sociologist interested in the study of labor markets, especially finance and academic labor markets, as a means to understand the development of unequal exchange relations at work and their impact on the dynamics of inequality. Since 2013, Olivier Godechot has been Co-director at MaxPo and directs a research group on the issue of financialization in modern societies, with a special interest in mobility in financial labor markets and their effects on broader inequalities. He has studied the division of labor and ordinary rationalities in a trading room and compensation mechanisms in the financial industry. Extending his interest in labor markets to academia, he has also examined university hiring, in particular the impact of networks on recruitment. He has published four books on finance, labor markets, and traders.
