I am a doctoral researcher at KU Leuven, Belgium. Here is my CV. My research is focused on political, legal and institutional aspects affecting public procurement markets.


“The Cost of Favoritism in Public Procurement” (with Bruno Baranek) now available as Discussion Paper of the Department of Economics at KU Leuven. Previously, we have been awarded the 2nd prize for the Young Czech Economist of the Year in 2019, ranked 3rd best paper at the EPCS Meeting 2018, and among the 3 best papers at Public Choice Meeting 2020.

“Political donations and the allocation of public procurement contracts” (with Benny Geys) published in European Economic Review. 

You can find my other projects in the Publication and Policy work sections.
