I am a Research and Teaching Fellow in the Department of History, Economics and Society and the Paul Bairoch Institute of Economic History at the University of Geneva (UNIGE). I am also a research fellow of the World Inequality Lab.

My research and teaching interests cross political economy, economic history, the history of economic thought, macroeconomics, and economic development. I mainly work on the measurement, history and institutional aspects of economic distribution, on how it relates to the macroeconomy, its development, and its politics. I also work on policies for shared and sustainable prosperity.

My early work focused on improving existing measures of economic inequality so that they were commensurate with indicators of growth. This research was initially concentrated on Latin America, and specifically Brazil, but eventually found its way to Europe. Through these experiences I helped craft the guidelines for Distributional National Accounts with my colleagues at the World Inequality Lab. Subsequent work applied these methods in institutional collaborations with the UN-ECLAC (CEPAL) and country governments in Latin America, beginning in the Dominican Republic, but currently being extended to more countries in the region.

While my work continues to explore different economic and political aspects of capitalist development, my current research focus is leading me to explore the macroeconomic implications of economic inequality more generally by merging Distributional National Accounts with Stock-Flow Consistent modelling in an attempt to contribute a distributional theory of business cycles.
