Personal profile


I am an interdisciplinary economist, data scientist and social science researcher trained originally in cultural studies and comparative economic history. I also have a strong background in quantitative methods obtained over time through learning-by-doing, teaching, experience and by studying for diplomas in panel data analysis and data science more broadly.

In my research I typically conduct policy evaluations using panel data-based research designs.

I focus on topics in international and sustainable trade, such as the impact of institutions and policies on long run economic outcomes (technological change).

Most of my research to date has been concerned with the challenges of reincorporating the former socialist countries into the global trading system. This theme has now experienced a renaissance in international trade, and due to the surprising developments in the economic and political transition path of countries such as China and Russia.
