I am a PhD Student in the Economics Department at University College London. I am also a PhD Scholar in the Centre for Microdata Methods and Practice at the Institute for Fiscal Studies.
My main research interests are applied and labour economics. I have been working on structural estimation techniques to evaluate policy interventions. I am particularly interested in dual labour markets and Employment Protection Legislation.
My studies have been funded by the Portuguese Ministry of
Sciences, grant SFRH/BD/60238/2009, from 2009 to 2013, and CeMMAP, since 2013.
My research on Dual Labour Markets has received financial support from the Chaire
de recherche sur la sécurisation des parcours professionnels.
