I am an applied microeconomist and my research focuses on the impact of mismatch on economic outcomes. I use model based empirical methods to understand and predict the behavior of agents under different policies.

I work at Duke University, in the Economics Department. I am also affiliated to the Center for Research in Economics and Statistics (CREST) in France. My recent projects involve the potential effect of a tuition free college in the US, school choice in Ghana, and a collective model of migration.
