PhD candidate in Economics

University of Zurich

I am a PhD candidate at the Department of Economics of the University of Zurich, under the supervision of Professor Lorenzo Casaburi and Professor David Yanagizawa-Drott.

I work at the intersection of development and behavioral economics. My research focuses on how financial and social incentives shape economic outcomes in urban agglomerations in developing countries. I am also interested in the economics of education and the redistribution effects of early childhood interventions.

My field projects are based in Uganda and Peru.
