Welcome to my webpage!
I'm an Assistant Professor in Economics at the Geneva Graduate Institute (IHEID) and a CEPR Affiliate in the Trade (ITRE) and Development (DEV) Programmes.
I do research at the intersection between development, international trade and industrial organization. I study microeconomic aspects of firm behavior and interfirm relationships in developing countries.
I am one of the organizers of the Geneva Trade and Development Workshop. Info here: www.gtdw.ch
