About

Update: I’m pleased to say I’ll be joining Chapman University Argyros School of Business as an Assistant Professor of Economics and Management Science in the Fall!

I’m a PhD candidate in economics at Boston University. My advisers are Marianne Baxter, Samuel Bazzi, and Ray Fisman. I’m also a consultant to the Poverty Global Practice at the World Bank where I integrate machine learning methods and lead statistical and data science training. I’m graciously a fellow at the Rafik Hariri Institute for Computing and Computational Science.

This academic year you may find me at MIT’s political science department, where I am a visiting lecturer. Previously I was a visiting lecturer at Wellesley’s economics department.
