I am currently an Assistant Professor at the Economic Institute for Empirical Analysis at Kozminski University, Poland. I am also a researcher at the Institute of Urban and Regional Development, Poland. I have a Ph.D. degree from Bocconi University.
My main research interests lie at the intersection of political, development, and financial economics. I have been studying the stock market and investors’ sentiments throughout my research career and have been working on several research projects on the understanding of investors’ decisions in banking, armed conflicts and terrorism related areas. I have been also studying the development of the land market in Ukraine publishing on topics connected to clientelism in the land market and security of property rights for land. Currently, I am working on several projects investigating urbanization, polarization, and populism, and their impact on socio-economic outcomes.
I am a founder and a host of Policy Implications Podcast.
And I'm also a co-founder of the "New Dawn" initiative aimed at advocating EU membership for Ukraine and searching for best practices for the future reconstruction of the country.
