Welcome! I am a Postdoctoral Associate and Lecturer at Yale's Program on Ethics, Politics, & Economics. I received my PhD in Politics from Princeton and an MA in Quantitative Methods in the Social Sciences from Columbia as a recipient of la Caixa Graduate Fellowship.
I study comparative politics and historical political economy. My interests include political elite formation, education, colonial legacies, and culture, with a focus on Africa. My work has appeared in Studies in Comparative International Development and Public Choice.
While in graduate school, I consulted for Innovations for Successful Societies in Mexico. I also worked as a co-principal investigator with Innovations for Poverty Action in Uganda and at the World Bank in Poverty Reduction and Economic Management.
