Ideas:
“  My research interest are labor and development economics, with a focus on firms decisions, forced migration, diversity, and crime. One strand of my research explores how firms' decisions change with economic and political shocks. I have work that studies how firms cope with violent crime in Colombia, refugee migration shocks in Middle East, and higher diversity in the United States. Another strand of my research explores the effects of forced migration in hosting economies. Some of my work explores the effects of Syrian refugees in Jordanian’s consumption decisions and the impacts of Venezuelan migrants in voting behavior in Colombia. I also have other ongoing research projects that study the effects of crime and conflict on economic activity.  ”
