I  finished my MSc in Social Science Research Methods (awarded with distinction) at the University of Bristol with a thesis on start-ups, embeddedness and investment networks (available here). Before joining Bristol, I studied Economics at the Bucharest University of Economic Studies and the University of Amsterdam.

For more than a year, I collaborated with Transparency Solutions in various projects as an independent researcher consulting on computational methods in policy research. Our work benefited from a small grant from the United Nations. I’ve also had research positions at the Vienna Institute for International Economic Studies and the University of Bristol. From 2017 to July 2018,  I worked for the European Central Bank in Frankfurt.

My research interests revolve around start-ups, organisations, economic sociology and networks.
