Welcome! I am a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the Department of Economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). I completed my PhD in Economics at the University of Edinburgh.

My research mainly focuses on wage inequality, collective bargaining, firm dynamics and on the ways in which they interact. I investigate the effects of industry-wide collective wage bargaining on firm entry, selection and optimal size and through these on aggregate output and employment. My other research explores i) the role of firms in driving the growth in earnings inequality, ii) the extent to which different sectors of the economy pay wage premiums iii) the causes of the decline in collective bargaining and iv) regional disparities in lifetime earnings.
