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 include economic history, development, and labor economics. I use historical microdata and natural experiments of history to study diverse topics in migration economics. I am also interested in understanding 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 am also studying 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.
