Welcome to my website! 👋

I’m a fourth-year Ph.D. candidate in Economics at the Paris School of Economics under the supervision of Thomas Piketty.

My research mainly focuses on historic forced labor, trade, and migration involving Eastern Europe. I’m particularly passionate about unlocking and leveraging large scale archival data.

I’m a fellow at the Institut Convergences Migrations, the World Inequality Lab, and Harvard’s Institute for Quantitative Social Science. Since 2021, I am also a research and teaching fellow at the Harvard economics department.

My CV is available here.
