I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics and Business at Universitat Pompeu Fabra and Affiliated Professor at the Barcelona School of Economics (BSE). Additionally, I am a Research Affiliate at CEPR International Trade and Regional Economics, and Development Economics groups and a researcher at CERGE-EI, Prague.

I received a Ph.D. in Economics from UCLA Anderson School of Management in June 2018.

I am an applied microeconomist focusing on firms and firm linkages in developing and middle-income countries. I use reduced-form and structural methods to understand how institutional frictions affect the interactions between the firms and firm linkages, and I also develop new methods.

My research areas are primarily Development Economics and Political Economy and also Applied Econometrics and Trade.
