I am a third year doctoral candidate in Political Economy and Government. My research interests span political economy, economic development, comparative politics, and public finance. Among my specific interests are public service delivery, state capacity, corruption, social networks, electoral integrity, and clientelism. 

I am affiliated with the Institute for Quantitative Social Science (IQSS) and Evidence for Policy Design (EPoD) at Harvard University, and worked as a consultant for the World Bank this past summer.

Before my doctoral studies, I graduated from Harvard Kennedy School's MPA/ID program and from Washington University in St. Louis where I studied Economics and Mathematics. I have also worked as a research assistant to Profs. Dina Pomeranz, Rohini Pande, and Horacio Larreguy in the fields of development economics, political economy, and public finance.
