I am a PhD candidate in Agricultural and Resource Economics at the University of California, Davis. My main fields of specialization are development economics and applied econometrics. My additional minor fields are behavioral and labor economics.

Prior to joining the PhD program, I attained a Master of Public Policy from Georgetown University in 2010 after which I was a researcher in the Labor and Social Protection Unit at the World Bank.

I am also currently an editor for the development economics blog Economics that really matters.
