Structural Econometrics Behavioral Economics Labor Economics


My research interests are Structural Econometrics, Behavioral Economics, and Labor Economics. I am especially interested in how individuals make decisions over their life-cycle and how behavioral elements impact their choices. Most of my work focuses on time preferences and expectations, and I develop new strategies to recover these from standard administrative and survey data. Most often, I rely on policy environments and natural experiments for identification. With the help of structural models, I also analyze how public policy can help to mitigate the negative consequences caused by behavioral decision-making
