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.
