I am currently an Associate Professor of Economics at Wesleyan University and a 2018-2019 WAPPP Fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. Previously, I have been a Visiting Research Scholar at the Center of Labor Economics at UC Berkeley, the Economics Department of Harvard University 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.
