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 interests cross political economy, economic history, macroeconomics, development and public economics. 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, with a focus on Europe and Latin America. I also do work on policies for shared and sustainable prosperity.
