I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at Yale University. I study development, labor, and public economics, with a focus on how individuals in Sub-Saharan Africa respond to urbanization and non-farm opportunities, and on the design of social protection programs in developing countries.

My Job Market Paper studies the economic impacts of female land inheritance in Ghana.

I am on the 2021-22 economics job market. I will be available for interviews at the AEA meeting in January 2022.
