I am a PhD candidate in Public Policy and Research Associate at the Center for International Development at Harvard. I work on Urban, Development and Labor Economics. My research studies cities and regions at different national income levels, with a focus on understanding the connections between labor markets, housing markets, and the industry composition of places.

I have also been a consultant with the German Technical Cooperation Agency (GIZ), the World Bank, the OECD and the private sector; advising local, regional and national governments on economic development and diversification policies in South America, Asia, the MENA region and South East Europe.
