I am a PhD candidate and a Junior Researcher at CERGE-EI (Center for Economic Research and Graduate Education - Economics Institute) in Prague the Czech Republic. From Fall semester of 2015 I am a Visiting Student Research Collaborator at Princeton University.

My main research interests are International Political Economy, Behavioural Economics, Education Economics, and Health Economics. I am particularly interested in the detrimental effects of wars and conflicts on a variety of outcomes: child development, human capital accumulation, health, social values and norms. Currently I am working on several data intensive projects in education and health economics with my colleagues at Princeton University.

During the past few years through an NGO in CEE region my work was focused on creation of network of scholars, promoting initiatives on right for information access in public sector and educating general public in order to help build a better functioning democracy in the region.
