Areas of Research

Structural Econometrics
My current primary area of research is methods and applications in structural econometrics. On the methodological side, I study the identification, estimation and solution of dynamic models, including models with strategic interaction (games). On the application side, I am currently working on projects that apply these methods to questions in political economy (electoral competition) and labor/public economics (the decision to retire and claim benefits).
Political Economy
I empirically study several issues in political economy, including: voting, electoral competition, human rights, and violent conflict.
Empirical Microeconomics
I also am interested in applying empirical methods to study questions in microeconomics more broadly, in areas including urban economics and labor economics.
