Hi, I graduated with a PhD in Economics from Penn State University. Prior to joining Penn State, I graduated with a M.Sc. in Applied Statistics (2008) and a second M.Sc. in Statistics and Applied Economics (2011), both from the ENSEA.

My research interests lie in International Trade, Labor Economics, Applied Econometrics and Applied Macroeconomics with a focus on inequality and welfare unequal distribution.

The focus of my research is evaluating the distributional impact of economic policies or shocks across heterogeneous population, using micro and macro data. Particularly, I investigate ways to better account for income inequality using non-homothetic preferences.
