Welcome to my website!
I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of St Andrews and a member of the Applied Microeconomics Group. I am also a Research Affiliate at the Oxford Centre for Economic and Social History.
My research interests are at the intersection between economic history and labor economics, with a focus on North and Latin America. I use historical microdata and natural experiments of history to study diverse topics in migration/labor economics and to investigate the long-term consequences of historical events.
Currently, I am conducting research on Mexico-U.S. and Canada-U.S. immigration using individual border crossings. I am also examining the impact of European immigration on agricultural productivity in Brazil.
I received my Ph.D. from the London School of Economics in 2020 and spent a year as a postdoctoral researcher at Pembroke College, University of Oxford.
