PhD Candidate in Economics

Yale University

I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at Yale University. My current research investigates the interplay between family structures and labor market outcomes, with a focus on gender gaps and children outcomes. I also study the impact of parental mental health on children outcomes and the inter-generational transmission of poverty.

Before starting my PhD at Yale, I worked as a consultant for The World Bank and the UNCTAD, in projects related to gender, inequality, and the role of trade restrictions on the welfare of households.
