Welcome to my website!
I am an Assistant Professor of Economics and a member of the Applied Microeconomics Cluster at the University of St Andrews. I am also a Research Affiliate at the IZA Institute of Labor Economics, the Oxford Centre for Economic and Social History, and the LSE Historical Economic Demography Group.
My research interests are at the intersection of labor economics, economic history, and development economics, with a focus on North and Latin America. 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.
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 development in Brazil and studying the effect of local minimum wages on women's fertility and motherhood timing in Mexico.
