I am a Senior Lecturer at the Department of Economics, University of Auckland, New Zealand. Before this, I was Senior Lecturer at the School of Economics, University of Cape Town, South Africa (with tenure since 2014). I have an M.Phil in Economics from the University of Oxford and a PhD in Economics from Syracuse University.
My research interests are in the fields of International Trade and Development Economics. Topics I work on include trade liberalization effects and their interaction with domestic institutions, trade and firm behavior, trade and inequality and buyer-seller matches in international trade.
