Assistant Professor of Economics
American University

I will be starting as an Assistant Professor of Economics at American University in the Fall of 2019.

I am graduating from UC Berkeley with a PhD in Agriculture and Resource Economics. My primary research area is development economics and current research focuses on innovations in finance and technology in developing countries. I am interested in using microdata, randomized experiments, and data science to explore these topics. I currently have research projects in Bangladesh, Kenya, and India.

Previously, I earned a MS in Applied Economics from Cornell University and a BA in Economics and International Relations from Tufts University. I also spent four years working for Abt Associates on USAID funded development programs in South Sudan, Ghana, and Mozambique.
