Economics (2023 cohort)

My research interests are in the extension of computational econometrics methods to questions in development economics. Within development economics, I focus on the evaluation of interventions targeted at improving mental health and policy responses to climate-related shocks

Previously, I was a research assistant to Associate Professor Kate Orkin at the Centre for the Study of African Economics (CSAE). My most recent work as part of the CSAE explores the labour market effects of therapy in low and middle-income country contexts. I hold a Master’s degree in Data, Economics and Development Policy from MIT.
