UCL Department of Economics



I am an applied microeconomist with a focus on labor and family economics. My dissertation addresses questions such as how individuals share resources inside their household or how they make joint decisions on their consumption or allocation of time. In my job market paper I investigate how wages and the gender wage gap affect the joint allocation of married people’s time across work in the labor market, work in the household, and leisure. I develop a dynamic collective household model without commitment to lifetime marriage and I estimate it on PSID data after 1980.
