I am an Economist at the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and a Research Fellow at the Institut Convergences Migrations and Sorbonne Economics Center. I obtained my PhD in Economics from Paris School of Economics under the supervision of Hillel Rapoport and Ariell Reshef.

I am an applied economist with research interests focused on international migration, labour markets and regional economics. In my work, I use large administrative micro-data and employ various econometric methods to provide novel and causal evidence on policy-relevant issues.

Before joining the OECD, I worked as a Teaching and Research Fellow at the University of Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and Lecturer at the Paris Institute of Political Studies (Sciences Po). I was a visiting scholar at Harvard University and German Institute for Employment Research. Prior to my PhD, I worked as a junior economist at Global Source Partners (Istanbul office).
