Welcome! I am an applied econometrician. My job is to develop and apply statistical tools for the quantitative analysis of actual economic phenomena. I am especially interested to panel/clustered data, robust estimation and getting more and more passionate about spatial and network econometrics. I have a broad range of applied interests and enjoy coding econometric tools that may help other researchers in their work.
