I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of St Andrews and a member of the Applied Microeconomics GroupI am also a Research Affiliate at the Oxford Centre for Economic and Social History

My research interests include economic history, development, and labor economics. I use historical microdata and natural experiments of history to study diverse topics on migration economics. I also study how historical events shape long-run development patterns. Currently, I am conducting research on Mexico-U.S. and Canada-U.S. immigration using individual border crossings.

I received my Ph.D. from the London School of Economics in 2020 and did my postdoc at Pembroke College, University of Oxford.
