Hi there!

I am a doctoral student in economics at the European University Institute. I focus on behavioral, development, and labor economics. In 2017-2018 I was a visiting student at MIT Sloan School of Management.

In my research I use survey data and experimental methods to answer questions at the intersection of development and human behavior. Most of my current fieldwork studies how industrialization affects workers and their households in Ethiopia. Before starting my PhD, I was a consultant with the World Bank’s Development Research Group, a Research Associate at the Center for Global Development (CGD) and a consultant with the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD).
