Welcome to my personal webpage!

I am a PhD 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 online interviews at the 2020 European Job Market (EJM) and the 2021 ASSA Annual Meetings among other virtual interviews.
