Welcome to my website. I am an economist based at the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Research (LISER). My current research focuses on economic measurement and macro-economic implications. I am particularly interested in the spatial and distributional dimension of economic phenomena.

I have worked on measurement issues related to real estate economics, the dynamics in house prices and rents, the CPI, and the distribution of wealth.

My CV is available here.

Here are links to my profiles on LinkedIn, Twitter and Google Scholar.
