Research statement

I use applied econometrics to better understand causes of social and spatial inequalities. As a result, much of my work is centered around education and human capital production (and policy). I also study the role of information and expectations in decision making in the two markets I consider key for inequality: education and housing markets. In on-going work, I also study local cultural learning and determinants of regional differences in gender norms or economic activity.
