I am an Economist, Research Assistant at United Nations University World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER) and International Labour Organization (ILO).
My primary research interests are Impact Evaluation, 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.
