PhD candidate at Department of Economics, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
I am on the job market in the 2019-2020 academic year. I will be available for interviews at the EEA Job Market Meeting in Rotterdam.
My research focuses on labor and development economics with interest on economic history. Specifically, I study the legacy of institutions that are potentially harmful for social and economic development. These institutions include slavery in the United States and (and its abolition), and conflict in developing countries. These research questions are relevant both in modern day developing and, from an economic history perspective, developed countries. Other common themes that run through my dissertation work rely on detailed micro-level data and quasi-experimental research designs for causal inference.
