He has extensive research experience in several fields related to systematic research synthesis and meta-analysis. He has participated in several impact evaluation projects ranging from international trade, investment, economic conflicts and sanctions to public health, public governance, rural infrastructure programs, and to informal economy and enterprises, applying observational, experimental, and quasi-experimental evaluation techniques. He has a track record of published research in peer-reviewed scientific journals, among others in Energy Economics, Energy Policy, Labour Economics, Journal of Economic Surveys, AIDS Patient Care and STDs, Applied Economics, and Third World Quarterly.
