Welcome! I am a PhD candidate in Health Economics at the University of California, Berkeley. My research interests are in global health and development economics, broadly defined, in low-resource settings.

My current work focuses on understanding the role of digital healthcare technology and targeted incentives in improving access to high-quality care, and understanding determinants of 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.
