My research is about search and matching, local labour markets, and internal migration. It is motivated by trying to understand to what extent are people's outcomes the product of local and labour market constraints and opportunities. In my job market paper I use a combination of structural and reduced-form evidence to answer fundamental questions about how people move and find employment.

I will be available for interviews at the ASSA meetings in Atlanta, the European Job Market in Naples, and the RES PhD Meetings in London.
