I am an Economist and Research Analyst at the World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER).

My primary research interests are Impact Evaluation, Labour Economics, Education Economics and Intergenerational Mobility.

My work has been published in international peer-reviewed journals such as Review of Development Economics, International Journal of Educational Reform and World Development Perspectives.

I completed my PhD in Economics at Free University of Berlin. 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.
