Welcome to my personal webpage!

I am a fourth-year Ph.D. Candidate in Economics at The University of York, where I work under the supervision of Prof Thomas Cornelissen and Prof Emma Tominey. My research interests are in applied microeconomics focusing on impact evaluation in labour, education, health, and development economics.

I am on the 2020-2021 job market and available for interviews at the 2020 European Job Market (EJM) among other virtual interviews.
