Hi! I'm Mateusz.
I am an economist working on issues relating to economic development in rural areas around the world. My research interests include rural transformation, migration, mechanization and technology adoption... but also trade, health economics, consumer behavior, among others. Much of my research focuses on finding better ways to evaluate the economic impacts of programs and policies aimed at improving the lives of rural populations.
In terms of methods, I like to switch between structural modeling, microeconometrics, and experimental RTC-type approaches. I'm currently working on integrating remote sensing and machine learning into my research program
I currently work as a Research Fellow at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), in Washington DC.
Before gaining an interest in economics, I was a student of biology and life sciences at the French grande école Agro-Paristech (formerly INAPG).
