re_portrait2014-1I am an Economist at the World Bank Education Unit.

Before joining the World Bank, I was a Lecturer in the Economics Department at Stanford University and a Research Associate at the Centre for Economic Performance, London School of Economics and at Harvard Business School (PhD at Jesus College, University of Cambridge).

I work on three large research initiatives: the Ownership Survey, the World Management Survey and the Executive Time Use Survey.

My research field is applied micro-economics. My interests include topics in managerial and organizational economics, labour economics, economics of education, and development economics, with a focus on exploring differences between high, middle, and low income countries.
