Expertise: Labour Economics, Public Finance, Psychology and Economics

Current Areas of Research:

I am interested in how public policies can alleviate inequality. My current research aims to better understand the economic consequences of minimum wage policies.

My other area of research aims to better understand job search and its interaction to unemployment insurance. In particular, I am interested in whether non-standard preferences plays role in job search and how these preferences alter the optimal design of UI.
