I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Economics Department at Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada and a Research Fellow with the John Deutsch Institute for the Study of Economic Policy. I am also a member of the Canadian Women Economics Council.

My research focuses on international development, education, food security, and gender equality, with particular interest in how machine learning tools and text mining methods can be used to improve the design and evaluation of development projects and policies. I am on the Economics Job Market in the 2021-2022 academic year.

Since 2017, I have been combining my academic work with my work as an Associate with Limestone Analytics, where I manage the evaluation of a Girls’ Education Challenge project in Zimbabwe and other food security, education, and health projects around the world.
