I am an Assistant Professor of Economics at University College Dublin. The central themes of my research are
1) causes and consequences of migration
2) determinants of human capital (education, environmental factors)
I am a Research Fellow at the Institute of Labor Economics (IZA) in Bonn/Germany, the UCD Geary Institute for Public Policy and the Centre for Research & Analysis of Migration at UCL.
At UCD I teach econometrics and public economics. I also taught courses in microeconomics, labor economics and the economics of migration at Trinity College Dublin, the University of Luxembourg, and the University of Regensburg and provided econometrics trainings at the Central Bank of Ireland and the European Business School.
I regularly provide econometrics trainings, ranging from crash courses for incoming PhD students at the European Business School to staff trainings in the latest causal inference methods at the Central Bank of Ireland. The trainings typically last 2-3 days and include theory lectures as well as lab sessions with Stata and R.
