I’m a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Center for Effective Global Action at the University of California, Berkeley. I am on the 2018-2019 job market and will be available for interviews at the ASSA meetings in Atlanta.
My research combines the fields of development economics and household finance. My job market paper studies how microentrepreneurs respond to consumers’ financial technology adoption and quantifies the spillover effects of fintech adoption on other consumers. My other working papers and projects study financial inclusion, or the impact of access to financial services—including access to credit, savings accounts, and fintech.
I’m grateful to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, CEGA-Visa Financial Inclusion Lab, Digital Credit Observatory, Fulbright Program, Innovations for Poverty Action, National Science Foundation (doctoral dissertation grant and standard grant), and UN Foundation for research funding.
