I am a PhD candidate in Economics at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
My research interests center on Energy & Environmental Economics, Development Economics and International Trade.
My work focuses on how access to energy in low income countries affects economic development. To this end, I collect new, geo-identified data on the large-scale electricity expansions in Ethiopia, Myanmar and Zambia. In my analyses, I combine reduced-form causal and structural estimation, employing tools from international trade.
My job market paper focuses on the role of interactions between infrastructure such as electrification and roads in Ethiopia over the last two decades.
