About me

I am an Economist in the Macroeconomics, Trade and Investment Global Practice of the World Bank. In September 2020 I completed my PhD in Economics at Oxford University. My research focuses on international trade, emerging technologies, labour markets, development and climate policy.

I am also a researcher for the Pathways for Prosperity Commission on Technology and Inclusive Development and a Research Fellow at the UK's Institute for the Future of Work. In 2019 I was a Visiting PhD Student at Stanford's Department of Economics. Prior to my PhD I was an ODI Fellow in Rwanda's Ministry of Trade and Industry. I am also part of the ClimateChangeAI team.

If you have any thoughts about my research (or other things) I would love to hear from you:
