Lange Fabian Lange completed his Ph.D. in economics at the University of Chicago in 2004 and subsequently joined the Department of Economics at Yale University. His research interests are in the determinants of life-cycle earnings, the interaction between investment into children and fertility, and in the causes for persistent geographic wage differences. He also pursues interests in health economics.

In his thesis he estimates the speed with which employers can learn about employee ability within a framework of common employer learning and statistical discrimination. Currently, he develops methods that allow using human resource data on performance and wages to investigate how much firms know about individual worker skills and how this knowledge as well as the skillss of workers evolve. He is currently also in projects that examine the changes in the supply of skills across cohorts in the United States and, more generally, the supply response to the increase in skill prices observed in the US over the last 25 years. He is also engaged in research on the relation between migration and capital flows. His research in health economics examines the role of education in individual health decisions, such as for example the cancer screening decision.

He joined IZA as a Research Affiliate in October 2005 and became a Research Fellow in April 2007.
