I am a PhD candidate in Economics at the Aalto University and a researcher at Labour Institute for Economic Research LABORE in Helsinki, Finland.

Next Fall, I will join the Institute for Applied Microeconomics at the University of Bonn as an Assistant Professor.

I do research on labour economics at the intersection of the labour markets, public policy, and political responses. In my work, I also use Machine Learning methods to digitize archived documents and to use new types of data like text and images in econometric analysis.
