Background:
 
I am an economist specializing in macroeconomics, trade, and investment of developing and resource-rich countries. My research focuses on the role of technology investment in economic growth. I have over 9 years of experience, including in macroeconomic analysis, academic research, corporate strategy and data analytics, and venture capital finance.

I have advised governments on macroeconomic risk, economic development, and structural change through international organizations including the World Bank, KenyaWorks, the International Institute of Sustainable Development, and the Intergovernmental Forum on Mining, Minerals, Metals, and Sustainable Development. I have also advised private-sector clients on country and industry risk, including currency, long-term structural, environmental, and political risk.  


My academic background includes a doctorate in economics from Oxford University and a bachelor's in economics and philosophy from Cornell University.  My research has involved a deep understanding of many frontier macroeconomic methods, including modern endogenous growth and development macroeconomics, computational macroeconomics and numerical techniques, financial macroeconomic modeling, and behavioral macroeconomics. From 2015-2020, I was an assistant professor (tenure-track) in economics at Trinity College in Hartford, Connecticut, where I taught courses in macroeconomic theory, economic growth, computational economics, and economic history. I have also taught for New College and the Department of Economics at Oxford University, and I served as Junior Dean at Pembroke College, Oxford from 2011-2013.   

Originally from Los Angeles, California, I currently reside in Paris, France.
