    I have a multidisciplinary background in Economics and International Business. I am interested in understanding the main forces behind firms' decision-making in urban areas, cross-border investments in green technologies in both developed and developing countries, and ultimately the factors that impact the productivity-exit disparities for firms in urban areas.
