About me

I am a Team Leader and Senior Research Associate at IZA - Institute of Labor Economics and I am affiliated with CESifo in Munich.

My research focuses on the field of economics of education, overlapping with labor economics and political economy. As an applied micro-econometrician I address policy-relevant questions on how social environments and individual behavior and decisions interact in determining the formation of skills and affect economic inequality. My research has been published in journals such like the Journal of Labor Economics, the Journal of Human Resources and the American Economic Journal: Applied Economics.
