I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at the University of Zurich and Associate at Harvard University, Department of Human Evolutionary Biology. My primary research interests lie at the intersection of Development Economics, Economic History, and Political Economy. I seek to better understand contemporary economic outcomes by taking an evolutionary perspective and how development policy can be optimally designed given the local context – e.g., social structures and cultures. I have specialized in innovative empirical methods – including machine learning and natural language processing.
