Personal profile

Research interests

I investigate questions of macroeconomic development, exploring why some countries are richer than others. I am particularly interested in interactions between economic growth, inequality, and poverty; and in the role of globalization for development and growth.

I primarily analyze those issues empirically and aim at applying and improving state-of-the-art econometric methods, especially for panel data.
