I graduated from Harvard University in May 2017 with a Ph.D. from the Political Economy and Government program (Economics track). I joined Bocconi University as an Assistant Professor of Economics in the Fall of 2017.
I am a CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholar with the Institutions, Organizations & Growth research program. I am also a Research Associate of Innocenzo Gasparini Institute for Economic Research (IGIER) and Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR).
My research interests are at the intersection of development economics, political economy, and economic history. Most recently, I have been working in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
