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 the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR).
My research interests are at the intersection of development economics, political economy, and economic history. Many of my on-going projects are in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
