Postdoctoral Associate, Department of Economics & Economic Growth Center, Yale University

I study development economics and political economy. My current projects employ natural experiments to explain the roots of political violence and ethnic divisions. These form part of a broader agenda on political institutions, state capacity, and economic development.

I will join the Department of Economics at Tufts University as an Assistant Professor in 2019.
