About me

I am a PhD student in Economic Geography at the LSE, enthusiastic about my research on the distributional impact of globalisation on regional labour markets, income, and innovation inequality. I am an Early Stage Researcher of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network on Policies for Smart Specialisation (POLISS).

Prior to joining the LSE, I completed my MSc in Economics from the Vienna University of Economics and Business (WU). As a teaching and research associate at the WU, I conducted research on regional inequality, migration, and environmental hazards. Outside of academia, I have also worked as a consultant in the field of sustainable development at the Asian Development Bank and completed a research project on gender inequality for the United Nations Development Programme.
