Welcome! I am a PhD candidate in Health Economics at the University of California, Berkeley. I am on the job market in the 2021-2022 academic year. My research interests are in global health and development economics.

My current work focuses on understanding the role of targeted incentives in improving coordination between patients and providers for high quality care, and understanding parental investments in early childhood health.

I’ve been involved in research projects throughout Africa and Latin America, and have conducted field work in Kenya, Madagascar, Zambia, Peru, Colombia and the Dominican Republic. Before graduate school, I worked at Innovations for Poverty Action in Zambia and in New Haven evaluating health and social safety net programs in the US and abroad.
