Welcome to my personal page! I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at the University of California, San Diego. My research focus is in Econometrics and Policy Evaluation. I study how to robustify causal inference procedures against data limitations that typically arise in applied economic research. I will be joining the University of Bristol as a Lecturer (Assistant professor) at the end of the Summer 2022.
