Andrew Wolf

Assistant Professor of Global Labor & Work
Global Labor and Work (GLW)


Andrew is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Global Labor and Work at Cornell University’s School of Industrial & Labor Relations. His research interests center around how the labor movement and governments are responding to emerging labor market forms such as the gig economy. His research is based on two years of ethnographic and survey work with two immigrant Workers’ Centers in New York City who are organizing gig workers and by working as an app-based food delivery worker himself. He is focused on the impacts of app-based employment for immigrant populations. Andrew's research helped inform the New York City Council on legislation to provide minimum employment standards for app-delivery workers and has been featured in the New York Times, NPR, Bloomberg, Thompson Reuters, and New York Magazine. Before coming to Cornell, Andrew received his PhD in Sociology at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and was a research fellow at the Workplace Justice Lab at Rutgers University.
