Hello and welcome to my webpage.

I'm Research Economist at the Competence Centre on Microeconomic Evaluation (CC-ME) of the European Commission, DG Joint Research Centre.

My research mainly falls into seven areas: i) civil wars and conflict resolution; ii) the quantification of the economic costs of war; iii) the microeconomic impact of peacekeeping operations; iv) international migration, cultural diversity and economic growth; v) public spending and immigration; vi) the political economy of bilateral trade; vii) dual labour market and informal work. My work is largely based on data analysis and applies rigorous econometric methods for identifying causal relationships.
