I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Economics at Duke University and a Scholar at Duke Global Health Institute.
My research interests lie at the intersection of development economics, health economics and political economy. I have work and research experience related to different health areas such as malaria, nutrition, Ebola, HIV, and chronic diseases. Prior to joining Duke, I studied Economics at Bocconi University and I worked as a research manager for the World Bank in Lesotho.
I am currently studying the political consequences of the Ebola outbreak in Liberia and the impacts of local resources’ booms on health at birth in Brazil. I am also working on projects in Myanmar, Kenya, and India.
