A copy of my CV can be found here. (Updated March 2020)
Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, I recieved my undergraduate degree from Cornell University, with a double-major in Economics and Philosophy and a concentration in Law and Society. My undergraduate thesis was on a political game theoretic analysis of the separation of powers in the US.
Upon graduation from Cornell, I moved to the UK, where I already had citizenship. From October 2006 to February 2008, I worked as an analyst in strategy at Lloyds TSB, the UK's largest retail bank at the time. During this time, I started working pro-bono as an economic consultant at KenyaWorks, a non-profit organization focused on providing vocational training and finance for community projects in rural Kenya. Through this, I conducted field work in Kenya and recognized the need for further education in development economics. Following a brief stint on the Obama for America campaign, I enrolled in the Economics MPhil program at Oxford. My MPhil thesis was entitled, "stunted growth: a DSGE analysis of credit constraints on technology investment," and it received the highest mark of macroeconomics theses that year.
In 2015, I received a DPhil in economics from Oxford. My thesis is entitled, "big effects of a little industry, a structural analysis of the effect of venture capital on the macroeconomy." I have taught for the Oxford Univeristy Department of Economics and for New College, Oxford. In addition, I served as Junior Dean for Pembroke College, Oxford, where I was responsible for the safety and welfare for roughly 600 students.
From 2015 to the beginning of 2020, I was in a tenure-track role at Trinity College, in Hartford, Connecticut, where I taught courses in macroeconomics, economic growth, and economic history. As part of my role there, I also served on academic committees, advised students, and supervised student research.
Since January 2020, I have been working as a freelance economist in Paris, France.
