I am a 4th year PhD candidate in Economics, and my primary interest lies in Applied Econometrics. I got inspired to implement econometric tools to analyze phenomena associated with migration in 2015 during the European refugee crisis. Following the news and information in the media, I realized there was a considerable discrepancy concerning migration between common beliefs and scientific facts. This discrepancy was especially striking in topics associated with the labor market. It motivated me to start my research on different migration-related topics and eventually publish my outcomes to contribute to changing the existing misperceptions of migration consequences.
My second passion is programming, which I combine with economics while estimating structural models. I also design simple applications in my spare time, which help me fulfill everyday tasks more efficiently. Check my GitHub profile to see examples of my codes.
If I have a little free time, I always find a way to escape to nature – I love hiking and kayaking (you can see some photos from my trips below). Apart from that, I enjoy discussing and reading about social and political history – the reasons and consequences of political events in the past. Also, I would not say no to watching a good football match or Formula 1 race on the weekend.
