Hello, and welcome! I am a third-year PhD Student in the Wilf Family Department of Politics at New York University. My research interests lie broadly in comparative politics and political economy of development.

I hold an S.M. in Technology and Policy from MIT (2018) and a B.A./B.S. in Economics and Environmental Economics and Policy from the University of California, Berkeley (2015). Prior to graduate school, I  worked as a researcher in the Macro and Growth team in DEC at the World Bank Group, MIT Tata Center, Columbia Business School, and UC Berkeley Economics.
