Research Interests: Applied microeconomics


I am an MPhil in Economics student and an ESRC scholar. 

Prior to Oxford, I earned a BSc in Economics from University College London, where, in my final year, I was placed on the Faculty Dean’s List and awarded the Harold Speight Prize for the best overall performance in the Department of Economics. I was also awarded the UCL Faculty Undergraduate Scholarship for Excellence and the Hume-Lloyd Sessional Prize in my penultimate year.

Born in Tehran, I have lived in the United States, Scotland, and England. Moreover, I have worked as a Summer Analyst at Morgan Stanley and as a Pre-Doctoral Fellow at the Institute for Fiscal Studies, both in London.
