I am a PhD Student in Political Economy at the Stanford Graudate School of Business. I am interested in how political and market institutions jointly determine how citizens and the state interact and how folk seek to achieve change beyond electoral means. I also like clarifying causal estimands and improving our techniques to identify them.
Previously, I was a Predoctoral Research Fellow with the Political Economics group here at the GSB. I worked with Professor Saumitra Jha in the Conflict and Polarization Lab; Professor Rebecca Diamond in the Cities, Housing, and Society Lab; and Professor Katherine Casey on political economy issues in Sierra Leone.
In 2020, I graduated from University College London with my undergraduate degree in Economics and was awarded the Harold Speight Prize, “given to the finalist with the best overall degree result”. At UCL, I was a research assistant for Professor Parama Chaudhury on the UCL BME attainment gap project and the winner of ExploreEcon 2019.
