Personal profile

Research interests

I am interested in rigorous social science research which helps inform public debates and generates social value-added. My research focuses on the broad well-being consequences of economic development and labor market arrangements. I rely on rigorous statistical analysis of individual- and country-level data and focus on topics related to migration, entrepreneurship, and the long-term socio-economic consequences of communism. 

My work (with co-authors) has appeared in journals such as World Development, Journal of Population Economics, and the Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization.
