Work in progress
mpitba toolbox for multidimensional poverty indices (MPI). The Stata package
mpitbcomprises several subcommands to facilitate specification, estimation, and analyses of MPIs. The toolbox offers several benefits to researchers, analysts and practitioners working on MPIs.
I’m a postdoctoral researcher at the Centre for Demographic Studies (CED) at the Autonomous University of Barcelona. I received my PhD in economics from TU Dortmund in Germany, where I previously studied economics and sociology. I’m also a Research Associate with the Oxford Poverty and Human Development Initiative (OPHI) at the University of Oxford, a member of Equalitas, a network of Spain-based researchers working on poverty and inequality, and a Fellow of the Global Labor Organization.
Broadly speaking, I’m interested in questions about conceptualization, measurement and analysis of human well-being and related inequalities. More specifically, I’m currently working on multidimensional poverty measurement and analysis, subjective well-being, and the capability approach.
In my work with OPHI, I’m co-leading the estimations of the global multidimensional poverty index (MPI) among other things.
