I conduct research in Africa and Asia in order to develop answers to fundamental questions about microenterprise development, environmental economics, post-conflict recovery and community governance. My work has been published in the Quarterly Journal of Economicsand Ecological Economics.

I am currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Connecticut in the department of Agricultural and Resource Economics. Previous to this position, I was a post-doctoral fellow in the Development and Security Department at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin). I received my PhD in Economics from the University of California, Irvine in 2009.
