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 financial technology adoption with network externalities: specifically, I examine how retailers respond to consumers’ fintech adoption, as well as spillover effects on other consumers. My other papers study financial inclusion, or the impact of access to financial services for the poor.
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.
