Expertise: Environmental Economics, Labour Economics, Policy and Programme Evaluation, Applied Microeconometrics, Spatial Analysis
Biography:I am a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow at the Centre for Economic Performance, London School of Economics, and a Consultant at the World Bank.
I am an applied economist: my research fields are environmental and labour economics, policy and programme evaluation, and applied microeconometrics, with a particular focus on spatial analysis. My PhD in Economics was completed at the Paris School of Economics in the autumn of 2017.
I am primarily interested in how our natural, built, or organisational environment affects our lives – specifically our behaviour, health, and (ultimately) our well-being. My work is aimed at informing evidence-based policy on how to improve these outcomes in a cost-effective manner.
For my work, I have been awarded the FEEM Award (Young Economist Award) by the European Economic Association.
