Welcome to my website!

I am an Assistant Professor of Economics and a member of the Applied Microeconomics Group at the University of St Andrews. I am also a Research Affiliate at the IZA Institute of Labor Economics and at the Centre for Economic and Social History, University of Oxford.

My research interests are at the intersection between economic history and labor economics, with a focus on North and Latin America. 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.
