MyselfI am an academic researcher interested in the evolution and distribution of income and living standards. I am a postdoctoral research fellow at Nuffield College at the University of Oxford. In addition, I work as consultant for the World Bank Chief Economist Office for Europe and Central Asia. Currently I am a visiting scholar at the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard University.

From January 2018 onwards I will join Overseas Development Institute in London as a research fellow.
