I received my PhD in Economics in 2016 from the City University of New York Graduate Centre and joined the University of Strathclyde shortly thereafter. I am primarily an empiricist who utilizes the quantitative tools of applied microeconometrics and – if possible – large administrative data sets.


I am an applied micro-econometrician whose research interests include health economics, labour and education economics, and the economics of law and crime. I have written on the economic causes and consequences of risky behaviours, such as excessive drinking, drug abuse, speeding, and crime. My research has been published in, among others, the Journal of Law and Economics and the International Review of Law and Economics.
