I am a PhD student in economics. Before starting my PhD, I worked as a consultant for the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) and for the World Bank.
For both organizations I was conducting empirical research on structural change which was used in reports on industrial development and policy evaluation.
I have been using R extensively during my time as a consultant for these organizations and in my academic research.
I am experienced in preparing and merging databases (online data sources, relational databases) and empirical modelling (including panel/longitudinal and time series), and in Shiny.
