I’m an economist for the USDA Economic Research Service. My work centers on the economics of innovation, especially as it relates to agriculture and the environment. Click the research tab above for more information.
I graduated with a PhD in Economics from Iowa State University in 2015. Before that, I studied at the London School of Economics (MSc in economics) and the University of Cambridge (diploma in economics). Between those two degrees, I spent two years working as a Sub-Saharan Africa analyst at the London based Business Monitor International. I discovered economics late in my undergraduate years, towards the end of a double-major in physics and religious studies.
