Personal details

I am an applied microeconomist conducting research on the topics of education and ageing. In the past, I have analysed questions on immigrant children. More specifically, I have studied their educational attainment as well as their potential influence on the native students who are studying in the same classroom. I am currently working to see how governmental financial support affects people's savings and caregiving behaviours.
