About Me

I am a Research Scientist in the Economics and Policy Research team at Facebook. 

Prior to joining Facebook, I completed my PhD in Economics at Northwestern University. My research interests are in the economic issues of developing countries, with a focus on trade policy, agriculture, technology adoption, financial inclusion, and political economy. 

In the past, I worked as a Consultant in the World Bank’s Development Impact Evaluation group, and was a visiting researcher at the University of Ghana. I have conducted fieldwork in Ghana, Rwanda, Kenya, Bangladesh, and India. Prior to my PhD, I received a Bachelor’s degree in Economics from Cornell University.
