UCL Department of Economics



My primary areas of research are Microeconomic Theory, Political Economy and Public Economics. My research focuses on the analysis of collective decision making, specifically on the role played by political processes and institutions in shaping public policies.  In my job market paper I investigate the effects of population ageing on immigration and fiscal policies in a voting model. In other research I study, within a collective choice framework, the relationship between income inequality and public spending policies with redistributive effects, such as education and other publicly provided goods.
