I am an applied micro-economist. My research interests are in the area of applied household economics. In particular, I have studied retirement decisions of couples and household time allocation.  More recent research of mine focuses on the impact of terrorism on individual behaviour. 

I m currently President of the Society of the Economics of the HOusehold (SEHO). The 2021 annual meeting of SEHO will take place in Boston, at Boston University, and I am a co-organiser.
