I am an applied economist. I received my PhD in Economics from University College London, and an undergraduate degree in International Economics from the University of Tübingen. I am a research affiliate at BIDSA, CEPR, CReAM, IGIER, IZA and LEAP.

Assistant Professor

“The Dynamics of Return Migration, Human Capital Accumulation, and Wage Assimilation”, (joint work with Jérôme Adda and Christian Dustmann) was accepted for publication at the Review of Economic Studies.

Research interests

My research interests include labor economics, political economy and development economics. One focus of my research is on geographic mobility, individuals’ location choice, migration duration, and migrants’ assimilation and investment decisions. My current work investigates the macroeconomic effects of migration in the European Union.
