I am the 2022 McKenzie Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Department of Economics at the University of Melbourne.
I am an economist interested in education economics and applied micro-econometrics. I study natural experiments using observational data and administrative records, to understand the causes and consequences of socioeconomic disadvantage in the formation of human capital. I investigate how children’s educational outcomes are shaped by families responding to their social environment in education (e.g. teachers, peers) and to welfare policies.
Before joining the University of Melbourne, I was a postdoctoral
Research Associate at
University of Sydney. I received my Ph.D. in Economics from
Maastricht University in the Netherlands in March 2021, where I was
Marie. I hold a M.Sc. degree in Statistics from
Ensai in France, and a
M.Sc. in Economics from
University in Germany.
I am also a Research Affiliate at the
IZA Institute of Labor
Economics since July 2018, and a Research Affiliate at the
of Excellence for Children and Families over the Life Course (LCC)
since May 2018.
From June 2023, I am organizing the Applied Microeconomics seminar at the Department of Economics at the University of Melbourne. Please get in touch if you would like to present your work at our seminar!
