My research largely focuses on topics relating to cross-societal cultural differences/distance, the immigrant-trade link, immigration policy/history, public opinion towards economic globalization, and the consequences of increased international trade for domestic labor. I have worked on additional topics related to international trade (e.g., determinants of exporting behavior and the distance puzzle) and development-related topics such as multidimensional poverty and mircofinance.


My primary objective is to contribute empirical studies that foster a greater understanding of economic phenomena (generally) and, specifically, of international interactions.
