I am Head of Research at the Tax Justice Network, Assistant Professor of Economics at the CORPTAX group at Charles University, and a Research Fellow at the EU Tax Observatory. I am based in Prague, Czechia.
My research is mainly on topics in international corporate tax abuse, tax havens, financial secrecy, corruption, and public procurement. Through my research, I aim to help in the ongoing fight against corruption, tax abuse, financial secrecy, and inefficiency of the public sector.
I teach the undergraduate courses Principles of Economics I and II and Public Finance and the graduate course Public Economics. I hold a PhD in Economics from the Institute of Economic Studies at Charles University and a Master’s in Econometrics from Aix-Marseille School of Economics.
