I am a senior research fellow at the Department of Economics of University College London and at The Alan Turing Institute. I enjoy studying problems that involve economic behavior and institutions. Currently, I am working on topics related to firm-labor dynamics, political behavior, economic development and inequality. My main interest lies in building models with explicit social mechanisms that can be used to inform policy. Usually, this involves computational simulations of multi-agent systems, complex networks and analysis of big data. My aim is to advance the computational social sciences and make them an integral part of the toolbox of every social scientist.
