I am a PhD Student in Political Economy at the Stanford Graudate School of Business. My primary interests are in distributive politics and sub-national governance, studying how political and market institutions jointly determine the location of state-citizen interaction. I also get excited about methodological projects that clarify the behaviour of statistical tools under misspecification and measurement error.

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.
