about me

I am an economist working in political economy and development. My research studies how firms and investors navigate conflict, corruption, and crime in volatile markets. I am also interested in the politics of international finance; the environmental and political consequences of natural resource wealth; and urbanization in emerging countries.

Soon, I will be joining the World Bank as an Economist in the Office of the Chief Economist for South Asia. Previously, I was a Postdoctoral Associate in the Empirical Studies of Conflict research group and Lecturer at the School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University. 

I hold a PhD in Applied Economics from the Wharton School of Business, University of Pennsylvania, and an MPA/ID from the Harvard Kennedy School. I have conducted field research in Uganda, Nigeria, and Myanmar.
