I joined the Department of Economics as a Teaching Fellow in August 2021 to undertake teaching mainly in econometrics, research methods in economics and research in applied economics. For the academic year 2021/22 I have taken on the roles of Academic Support Coordinator and Academic Writing Skills Coordinator.
My research interests are in the area of labour economics, in particular, self-employment and the informal economy; labour market institutions and inequality; unemployment and subjective well-being. I am also interested in applied microeconometrics and related applied economics fields, including development economics, public policy and economic history.
I completed my PhD at Vancouver School of Economics, UBC specialising in labour economics. I also completed my Master’s degree there and my undergraduate degrees were in Economics and Economics & Economic History from the University of Cape Town.
