Biography

I am a PhD Candidate in applied economics at Cornell University, writing my dissertation on resilience measurement in the context of climate change. I work on applying a resilience paradigm to impact evaluation by combining on the ground and remote-sensing data. I have ongoing projects in Ethiopia, Malawi, Madagascar and Nepal. 

I am also an editor and regular contributor to the development economics blog 'Economics that really matters'.

Prior to Cornell I was an ODI Fellow at the Liberian Ministry of Finance. I helped set up the development coordination unit, worked closely with donors on aligning projects with national priorities, and provided technical support to Liberia’s statistical agency. As a member of the UK based Entrepreneur First accelerator I worked with GrainCoast, a Liberian organic agriculture Co-operative.

I have a MSC in Economics for Development from Oxford and a joint BS/MA from Georgetown University’s School of Foreign Service.
