My research interests are in the area of applied microeconomics, specifically in the fields of urban and regional economics, public economics, and state and local public finance. My research work has focused on issues related to household mobility, local labor markets, regional assistance to poor households when their income is not observed, and on the equality of opportunity of access to specific goods. I have also worked on a number of issues related to fiscal competition across jurisdictions, including state corporate income tax systems and the implications of using a formula apportionment system, and on urban crime. Simultaneously, I have been developing a line of research on the political determinants of foreign direct investment.
