Welcome! I am a researcher, educator, grant seeker and manager. Currently, I work as a Senior Research Economist at the Luxembourg Institute of Socio-Economic Institute (LISER), a Research Fellow at DIW Berlin and IZA (Institute for the Study of Labor) in Bonn and a Research Affilliate at the new Center for Population, Development and Labor Economics, POP at UNU-MERIT. I am interested in new collaborations.
My field of interest is labor, population and demographic economics. At the moment, my research is focused on examining the composition of wealth portfolios and labor market behavior with a demographic twist.
I spent the 2016-2017 AY on sabbatical at the University of Arizona, Department of Economics working on field specialization in economics.
I am managing co-editor of the oldest inequality journal Journal of Income Distribution. The journal is undergoing transformation and is accepting submissions.
In the past I coordinated the Wealth Project at the Luxembourg Income Study. One of the goals of the project was to create a cross-country comparable database of wealth microdata. The know-how gathered there fed into the ECB coordinated Household Finance and Consumption Project.
I received my Ph.D. from the Department of Economics at Johns Hopkins University. My undergraduate alma mater is Warsaw University,Department of Economic Sciences in Warsaw, Poland.
