I am currently an Associate Professor of Economics at Wesleyan University. I have been a 2018-2019 WAPPP Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government, a Visiting Research Scholar at the Center of Labor Economics at UC Berkeley, the Economics Department of Harvard University, the NBER and the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA).
In my research I work with large-scale microeconomic data to analyze different aspects of labor markets with econometric tools. In particular, I have looked at three areas of research: (1) informality, (2) gender and ethnicity, and (3) migration in developed and developing countries. I have published some of my work in academic journals and as policy papers.
In my varied career I have been fortunate enough so far to be working in different sectors: international organizations, education, private sector and even as a U.K. civil servant.
