MPhil student
MPhil in Economics

I am currently reading for an MPhil in Economics at Nuffield. I received a BA in Economics from the University of Cambridge (Pembroke College) 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. My research interests include applied microeconomics, development, behavioural economics and political science and law.
