I am an economist interested in income inequality, labor market segmentation and migration. Much of my empirical work consists in the measurement and decomposition of income inequality using survey data. Methodologically, I am interested in statistical and information-theoretical approaches to the micro-macro problem in the social sciences. For instance, I am working on characterizing the distribution of wages as a statistical equilibrium arising from the ceaseless interaction between employers and workers. This approach relies on Maximum Entropy and Bayesian methods to infer unobserved behavioral information from the observed wage outcomes.
