About me

My research interests focus on the integration of econometrics, spatial data science, and machine learning methods to understand and inform the process of development of regions, countries, and industries.

Currently, my research deals with (1) the quantitative geography of development; (2) regional economic growth and convergence; (3) regional labor market outcomes and macroeconomic shocks; and (4) structural change and productivity dynamics.
