- Module Convenor: Behavioural Economics and Econometric Methods
Areas of interestMy research focuses mainly on causal decompositions in treatment effect models and on empirical crime work.
My research follows two strands. My econometric work focuses on the identification of causal decompositions in treatment effect models, in particular in dynamic models in which agents adjust their behaviour in anticipation of a future treatment. My empirical work focuses on crime economics and forensic economics.
Postgraduate supervisionI am happy to supervise any topic in microeconometrics, as well as empirical work in crime, development, education, health or labour.
BackgroundIn short, I obtained my undergraduate degree from Northwestern University and my PhD at the Tinbergen Institute and the University of Amsterdam. I joined the faculty at the University of Mannheim in 2013. Following an unfortunate neck injury, I was forced to take a long break from work from 2016-2020. I joined the faculty at the University of Reading in 2020.
