Welcome to my site!


I am an economist in the Agriculture and Rural Development team of the World Bank's Development Research Group. Prior to joining the World Bank as a staff, I worked as World Bank’s consultant since 2009. I was also a Post-doctoral research scholar at the Center for Effective Global Action at the University of California Berkeley and a consultant at the United Nations University - World Institute for Development Economics Research (UNU-WIDER). My main research interests include poverty and inequality; environment and natural resources; education; urban, rural, and social development; and fragility, conflict and violence.
