I am a DPhil candidate in International Relations, specialising in International Political Economy. My research focuses on macroeconomic policymaking in low and middle income countries, with particular interest in sub-Saharan Africa.
I have prior work experience in both the public and private sectors on three continents. I hold an M.A in Global Affairs from Tsinghua University, where I was a Schwarzman Scholar, and a B.A in Political Science from Augustana University. Before embarking on the DPhil, I completed the MPhil (Distinction) in International Relations at The Queen's College, University of Oxford.
