Biography

I’m a humanitarian and development economist at the UCL Institute of Risk and Disaster Reduction and Advisor to Verite Research Asia. I completed my PhD in Economics from the University of Cambridge (St. John’s College), Masters in Economic History from the London School of Economics and undergraduate degree majoring in Economics and Computer Science from the University of Sydney, Australia (first class). Before joining the IRDR I was a Senior Lecturer in Economics at Oxford Brookes University (2014-2021) and a researcher, lecturer and tutor at Oxford University (2007-2014). I have worked as a consultant for the World Bank and ILO on issues relating to education, poverty, unemployment, privatisation and policy impact evaluation.

Research Summary

My research involves promoting the use of evidence in policy and decision making. Current interests are (i) how catastrophe modelling can incorporate ‘non-conventional’ aspects such as impacts on livelihood and mental health (ii) how welfare impacts of shocks on individuals and households evolve over time (iii) how program/policy impacts can be evaluated and (iv) fiscal policy, debt and debt sustainability. I focus mainly on developing countries such as Indonesia, Ethiopia, India and Sri Lanka. My work uses large household surveys and statistical methods to support evidence-based understanding of these issues in an interdisciplinary context.
