Director of Student Experience and Progression (UG) - Term 1

About me

My work lies at the intersection of political economics and development. I use data to understand the factors that increase firm-level productivity, examine how political competition affects public provision, and how public policies can build climate resilience in the tropics.

I am currently Director of Student Experience and Progression (Term 1).
