I am a PhD candidate in Economics at the London School of Economics, affiliated with STICERD.

I am an applied economist with research interests in development economics, political economy, and gender. I study how evidence is used for policy decisions, with a focus on program evaluations and development policy.

Before starting my PhD, I completed an MSc in Economics for Development from the University of Oxford and a BSc in Economics from LSE. I have held research and policy positions at the World Bank and the UN.

On this page, you can find information about my research and teaching.
