I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Woodrow Wilson School of Public & International Affairs at Princeton University.
Before my Princeton University appointment I was a PhD candidate and a Junior Researcher at CERGE-EI (Center for Economic Research and Graduate Education - Economics Institute) in Prague the Czech Republic. From Fall semester of 2015 I was a Visiting Student Research Collaborator at the Industrial Relations Section at Princeton University.
My main research interests are International Political Economy, Behavioural Economics, Education Economics, and Health Economics. I am particularly interested in the detrimental effects of wars and conflicts on a variety of outcomes: child development, human capital accumulation, health, social values and norms. Currently I am working on two country-wide field experiment in education and health economics.
During the past few years through an NGO in CEE region my work was focused on creation of network of scholars, promoting initiatives on right for information access in public sector and educating general public in order to help build a better functioning democracy in the EE region.
