I am a sixth year Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Economics. My research interests lie at the intersection of development and political economy. My research seeks to better understand how variation in political institutions affects governance and development policy. My current research explores how electoral rules in Brazil affect political incentives and public goods provision.
I earned a B.S. in Economics and Mathematics at MIT in 2013. Before beginning at Harvard, I worked for a year as a research assistant for Dave Donaldson at MIT.
