I am a fifth-year Ph.D. candidate in Economics at The George Washington University in Washington, D.C. I also work as a consultant at the Office of the Chief Economist of Infrastructure, World Bank.


I completed my Masters in Economics at Duke University under a Fulbright scholarship.


My main research interests are development economics, urban & regional economics, and applied microeconomics. Among other topics, my current studies include the effects of electoral competition on the allocation of financial services in developing countries, the roles of economic institutions and geography in regional development and growth, and the impact of digital technologies as a means of demonstrating the government capacity and effectiveness.​
