I am a postdoctoral researcher at the Faculty of Business and Economics of the University of Basel. My research combines theory and empirics to evaluate the design of health and social insurance policies.
I graduated with a PhD in Applied Economics from the University of Basel in October 2022. I visited the Center for Labor Economics at the University of California, Berkeley in spring 2022. Before my doctoral studies, I worked as a research fellow in health economics at the University of Lausanne.
