Welcome!

I work as assistant professor at the Institute for International Economic Studies, Stockholm. My research studies the process of economic growth and the importance of social structure for international economic development. Currently I am working on projects which seek to understand, both theoretically and empirically, the sources of resource misallocation and low aggregate productivity in developing countries.
