About


I am currently a doctoral student at Yale University. I will be joining the faculty of The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania as an Assistant Professor of Management in July 2017. My Curriculum Vitae and research page summarize recent papers and work in progress.

Prior to commencing my doctoral studies, I was Assistant Vice President at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. I hold a B.Sc. in Economics from The Wharton School, and M.B.A., M.A. and M.Phil. degrees from the University of Cambridge and Yale University, respectively. I have collaborated with organizations such as the Awethu ProjectFINCA International, and the Overseas Private Investment Corporation on projects and initiatives that advance entrepreneurship, impact investing, and microfinance in emerging markets.
