I am an applied micro-economist interested in development economics and political economy with a specific interest in conflict. My work focuses, first, the effects of conflict on the individual level, and second, on the effects of conflict on an international level. 

I am a Senior Research Fellow at the Max Planck Institute for Research on Collective Goods. Prior to this position I was a Ph.D. candidate at the European University Institute (EUI)  in Florence, where my advisors were David K. Levine and Thomas F. Crossley.
