I am an Assistant Professor and Rosalind Franklin Fellow at the University of Groningen (the Faculty of Economics and Business, Global Economics & Management).
Prior to that, I was a research Associate at the Institute of Labor Economics (IZA) in Bonn, Germany, where I am now a Research Fellow. I am also a Nonresident Fellow at the Brookings Institution, a Fellow at GLO, and am affiliated with the Happiness Research Organization in Düsseldorf, Germany and the Central European Labour Studies Institute (CELSI) in Bratislava, Slovakia.
My research focuses on the well-being causes and consequences of development, labor market arrangements, migration, and institutions. I am interested in rigorous social science research which helps inform public debates and generates social value-added.
