Associate Professor

I am an Associate Professor of Economics at the University of Manchester. My research is primarily focused on Public Finance issues of emerging economies. I am interested in understanding the behavior of economic agents to tax and transfer policies with a view to learn how the design of these policies, especially in weak enforcement environments, can be improved. I hold a Ph.D. in economics from the London School of Economics.
