Research summary

My research interests lie at the intersection between economic inequality and political economy, with a focus on inequality measurement and the comparative analysis of economic systems. I have recently developed the concept of compositional inequality, as well as an indicator for its measurement. To learn more about my work, you can consult my personal website.
