I am a tenure-track Assistant Professor at CERGE-EI in Prague (a joint workplace of Charles University and Czech Academy of Sciences). I received a Ph.D. in Economics from UCLA Anderson School of Management in June 2018.
I am an applied microeconomist with a focus on firms and firm linkages in developing and middle-income countries. I use both reduced-form and structural methods to understand how institutional frictions affect the interactions between the firms and firm linkages, and I also develop new methods.
My research areas are in Development Economics, Industrial Organization, and Political Economy, as well as Applied Econometrics.
