I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Economics at the University of Sydney and I work with Prof. Stefanie Schurer. I received my PhD in Economics from Maastricht University in the Netherlands in March 2021, where I was supervised by Prof. Olivier Marie.

My research focuses on human capital formation and applied micro-econometrics. I am interested in how chldren and their parents interact with the school system (through teachers and schools), and other public services (health, social security), and how these interactions ultimately explain patterns of socioeconomic disadvantage. I use administrative data and survey data from various settings, natural experiments and quasi-experimental methods.

During my PhD, I have visited the Melbourne Institute at The University of Melbourne from March 2018 to March 2019, IZA in April 2019, and the Jacobs Centre and the Department of Economics at the University of Zurich from May to October 2019.

I am a Research Affiliate at IZA since July 2018, and a Research Affiliate at the ARC Centre of Excellence for Children and Families over the Life Course (LCC) since May 2018.
