I am a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at Duke University. I specialize in development economics, with a particular focus on labor and health economics. My additional research interests include household decision-making, education, inter-group conflict, and inter-group inequality.

I am currently on the job market and will be available for interviews at the 2020 ASSA meeting in San Diego.

My job market paper considers the impact of fast Internet access on employment and household bargaining in sub-Saharan Africa. I find that fast Internet affects male and female employment differently, and that this difference can be explained in part by gender differences in education and household composition. In addition, I find that fast Internet alters household decision-making roles and increases the acceptability of domestic violence against women. I use a combination of GIS data and household survey data to estimate these effects.
