I am an assistant professor in the Department of Applied Economics and a McKnight Land-Grant Professor at the University of Minnesota, and also an Affiliated Professor at J-PAL. My research focuses on understanding the choices people in developing countries make about health, education, employment, and savings, with a specific focus on Malawi, Uganda, and India.

I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Michigan, where I was also an Economic Demography Trainee at Michigan’s Population Studies Center.
