MPhil in Economics

Research interests: development, gender, behavioural economics, political science

I am currently reading for an MPhil in Economics at Nuffield. My research focuses on gender in a development context; particularly early marriage in India. 

I received a BA in Economics from the University of Cambridge in 2016. In my final year at Cambridge I focused on economic theory and econometrics, completing a dissertation on radicalisation as a strategic choice in democracies. After graduating from Cambridge, I worked for UNICEF’s Policy Planning Unit in New York for four months, before moving to Caltech as a pre-doctoral scholar in 2017.
