About me

I am an Economist at the World Bank in the Development Economics Research Group's Trade and International Integration unit. My research focuses on trade, globalization, emerging technologies, labor markets, development and climate policy.

In September 2020 I completed my PhD in Economics from Oxford University. I am a Visiting Researcher at Oxford University's Center for the Study of African Economies and an External Research Fellow at the UK's Institute for the Future of Work. I was previously a Visiting Researcher at Stanford's Department of Economics, a Fellow of the Pathways for Prosperity Commission and a Fellow of the Overseas Development Institute.
