Welcome to my website!

I am a Research Associate at Universität Hamburg and will defend my Ph.D. in Economics from Erasmus University Rotterdam (EUR) and Tinbergen Institute (TI) on 01.12.2021.

My primary research interests are natural language processing (NLP), applied microeconometrics, the economics of gender & discrimination, and experimental economics.

My research combines 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 to work with Professor Malia Mason of the Management Division.

I am doing a small job search in this 21/22 academic job market, and am available for interviews at the EEA and ASSA meetings.

Here are the links to my job market paper and research statement.

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