Welcome to my website!

I am a Research Associate at Universität Hamburg and currently finalizing my PhD in Economics at Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) and Tinbergen Institute (TI). My primary research interest is in natural language processing (NLP), applied microeconometrics, gender economics and experimental economics.

I combine tools from text & acoustic data mining and high-dimensional econometric techniques to understand gender differences in debate tournament speeches and negotiation exchanges, as well as how group deliberation impacts individual normative preferences. During Fall 2019, I visited Columbia Business School as a Staff Officer of Research to work with Professor Malia Mason of Management Division.

On this site, you can find my CV, information about my references, research, teaching activities, and my collection of data science resources.
