I am an Economist, Consultant at International Labour Organization (ILO) and Research Associate at German Institute for Global and Area Studies (GIGA).
My primary research interests are Education Economics, Labour Economics and Intergenerational Mobility in developing countries.
I completed my PhD in Economics at Free University of Berlin in April 2021. Before that, I graduated from Free University of Berlin with a Master degree in Public Economics, and with a Bachelor degree in Economics and Management from University of Hanover.
In my job market paper, I use a quasi-experimental design, difference-in-difference and longitudinal data on academic achievement to evaluate ex-post the impact of an incentive-pay program for teacher on student performance in Brazil.
Also take a look at my other papers where I investigate intergenerational education mobility and the economic effects of the current COVID-19 pandemic.
