I’m a doctoral candidate in Politics at Nuffield College, University of Oxford. I’m also a Research Fellow at the Charter Cities Institute.

My research focuses on the political economy of development. Specifically, I’m interested in how institutional reforms affect public goods provision in developing countries with an area focus on sub-Saharan Africa.

At Oxford, I was a graduate teaching assistant in quantitative methods, and I’ve also taught undergraduate tutorials in African politics.

In the field, I’ve previously worked as a Research Manager for the International Growth Centre, for Warc Africa (both in Sierra Leone), and for ELIMU Impact Evaluation Centre in Kenya where I managed the implementation of several randomized control trials. I’ve also completed consulting projects with Oxford Development Consultancy and with Warc Africa.

I have an MSc in Development Management from LSE where I graduated top of my class and was awarded Best Dissertation Prize, as well as a BA in Development Studies and Economics from McGill University.
