I am a PhD student in the economics department at Yale University, and am on the job market in 2016-2017. I will be available for interviews at the ASSA meetings in Chicago in January.  

My research is at the intersection of development and trade, and focuses on how contracting problems shape transactions and firms in developing countries. In my job market paper, I estimate the size and welfare effects of search and contracting problems faced by Nigerian importers.
