Welcome to my website!

I am Assistant Professor in Economics and the Director of the Trudeau Centre for Peace, Conflict and Justice at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy at the University of Toronto. My background is as an applied economist with a focus on economics of conflict, economic development, inequality and political economy. My research has focused on the short and long-term consequences of conflict on welfare, the changing role of women in post-conflict countries, the role of institutions in shaping the presence of violence and on inequality and women’s empowerment. This has included a broad geographic focus, including work on inequality and discrimination in Brazil, violence and school performance in Mexico, violence, education and women’s empowerment in Timor Leste, and humanitarian responses to crises in Kenya, Nepal and the Philippines. Alongside my academic work, I have also previously worked at the Inter-American Development Bank and as a consultant with UN WOMEN.
