Welcome to my personal webpage!

I am an applied micro-economist working on policy relevant topics in labour, education, health, and development economics. I am completing my PhD in economics at The University of York under the supervision of Prof Thomas Cornelissen and Prof Emma Tominey. I received a master’s degree in economics from Victoria University of Wellington in 2015.

I am currently a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at The Centre for Fertility and Health, Norwegian Institute of Public Health.
