My main areas of research include public economics, urban economics, and public policy evaluation with a focus on local jurisdictions. I studied the importance of the urban setting for different local policy instruments, such as taxes on households and capital, and public goods and inputs. I am also interested in the empirical identification of tax competition. Recent research focuses on capitalization in housing prices of schools and pro-investment policy.
