I am a development economist focusing on global health, gender, and development. My research aims to identify economic mechanisms that inform policy design, particularly in understudied markets, with the goal of improving the health and agency of vulnerable people around the world. I focus on the use of field experiments and natural experiments to enable rigorous causal identification of these mechanisms.
