Hi there!

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

In my research I use survey data, experiments, and computational tools to answer questions at the intersection of development and human behavior. In my fieldwork, I study how industrialization affects households in Ethiopia. I also work with the World Bank to explore the use of cloud computing infrastructure for poverty measurement. 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).

You can find my current and past research here and my RePEc page here.
