My research focuses on understanding how institutions and public policies affect economic outcomes and urban life. I’m especially interested in how crime, violence, and discrimination, reshape cities. I am an applied microeconomist that uses quasi-experimental and experimental data; and complements the traditional econometric tools with advances in computer science, big data, and machine learning.
