My research interest lie in the intersection of applied microeconomics and big data. I am particularly interested in exploring ways in which we can study economic behavior and measuring economic outcomes through data collected from social media.


Work in progress:

  • From Twitter to GDP: Estimating Economic Activity From Social Media
  • The Effects of Hurricane Sandy on Businesses (with Francesc Ortega and Süleyman Taspinar)


  • Applied Microeconometrics
  • Big Data
  • Labor Economics
  • Development Economics
