I am currently an Associate Professor at the Department of Economics in the School of Economic, Social and Political Sciences at the University of Southampton. My primary research interest lies in the organization of investment and production in an economy, identifying potential mis-allocation and dynamic consequences touching issues in development economics and applied micro theory, for instance the sorting of talent in educational markets and implications for social mobility induced by college admission rules.

I have published research on occupational choice and assignment markets, when institutional or micro-economic imperfections (for instance limitations to instruments or information available to contracting parties) have adverse effects on the economy wide allocation (e.g. in terms of education investments and mismatch on capital and labor markets).
