Researcher in Economics
I am Researcher in Economics at the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences, based at the Centre for Health Service Economics and Organisation. Together with Dr. Catia Nicodemo, Prof. Cheti Nicoletti (University of York), and Prof. Julia Hippisley-Cox, we investigate the link between maternal depression and anxiety disorders and children mental health outcomes.
My research interests lie within applied microeconomics, with particular interest in early childhood conditions and human capital formation. More precisely, I have worked on the following topics:
- Measurement of socioeconomic inequalities in birth outcomes
- Evaluation of the causal impact of public interventions aimed at mitigating these disparities
- Examining the role of provider behaviour in shaping early childhood health.
- Unravelling the mechanisms behind heterogeneity in the success of conditional cash transfer programs.
I will be graduating from my PhD at the Erasmus School of Economics and the Tinbergen Institute in 2021.
