I am a Postdoctoral fellow at the Population Studies Center of the University of Pennsylvania (USA). I hold a PhD in Economics and my main research interests are Health Economics, Development Economics and Public Health. I am also interested in reporting heterogeneity and techniques to address it in empirical applications.
I am also the coordinator of a research for development (r4d) project funded by the Swiss Programme for Research on Global Issues for Development. This international project, which finances projects in India, Sri Lanka, the Philippines and Malawi, aims at assessing the impact of chronic illness on a wide range of outcomes such as health care expenditure, work capacity, socioeconomic outcomes and health and mortality to name a few.
