I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Econometrics & Operations Research at Tilburg University. I expect to graduate in the first half of 2023, and I am currently on the job market.

My main research interest is applying structural models to study productivity improvement and technological progress. One project uses micro-econometric methods to study the impact of removing input distortions on factor income shares. In another project, I zoom in on the electric-vehicle industry in China to study the optimal product subsidy scheme for product upgrading.
