I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Economics within Heriot-Watt University's School of Social Sciences. I am the Project Manager in the Centre for Energy Economics Research and Policy (CEERP).

I am generally interested in applied econometrics. My current research focuses on the relationship between energy prices and the performance of world economies.

Before starting my PhD studies at Heriot-Watt University, I completed my MSc in Economics at University of Edinburgh as a part of the Scottish Graduate Programme in Economics (SGPE). I received my undergraduate degree from Brandeis University in Waltham, MA with a double major (economics and linguistics) and a double minor (mathematics, and German language and literature).
