I am a Senior Lecturer (Advanced Assistant Professor) in Economics at the University of Queensland, a Research Affiliate at the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA) and an Affiliate at the CESifo Research Network.
My research is in applied micro-economics, focusing on policy-relevant questions in education, migration and labor economics.
I am currently working on understanding how to measure and what shapes gender biases and gender discrimination in education, but also in other environments. I am also working on teachers' value added, teachers' human capital depreciation, peer effects, etc. I have recently started working on the impacts of role models in education. I am also currently running several survey experiments to understand individuals' perceptions and behaviours. Part of my research investigates the effects of student autonomy during a pandemic. To investigate those topics I have undertaken massive data collections.
