I am an applied economist focusing on Labor Economics and the Economics of Migration. 

My current research projects focus on the causes and consequences of skills shortages. I investigate the effect of firms' hiring difficulties on productivity and innovation. I also study the human resources strategies implemented by firms to cope with their recruitment challenges. 

Another stream of my research documents the effects of cultural and linguistic differences on (1) the labor market integration of immigrant workers, (2) students' test scores.
