I am an assistant professor at the Stockholm Institute of Transition Economics (SITE) at the Stockholm School of Economics and an affiliated researcher with the Mistra Center for Sustainable Markets (Misum). I received my PhD from the Paris School of Economics in 2020.
Political Economy, Development Economics, Economics of Media
I collect large-scale datasets of traditional and social media in China and use econometric and text analysis tools to evaluate how institutional constraints shape media content and how individuals' beliefs and actions are in turn influenced by the media. A second theme of my research focusses on understanding the strategic interactions and incentives between autocratic elites.
