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

My research focuses on exploring international migration, trade and productivity nexus. I study the interaction between these elements across different country contexts using rich administrative datasets.

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 the Institute for Employment Research (IAB). Prior to my Ph.D., I worked as a junior economist at Global Source Partners (Istanbul office).
