I am a Development Economist, and have always wanted to be one since I was 17 when my teacher introduced me to the topic.

I love conducting fieldwork, which usually involves talking to people from different walks of life. I find that these experiences allow me to better shape my quantitative analyses.

Before joining the University of Reading, I was an Economist at Development Pathways, an international development consultancy that focuses on social protection, and a researcher at the Refugee Studies Centre, University of Oxford, where I worked with colleagues to understand the economic lives of refugees in Kenya, Uganda, and Ethiopia.
