I am the Chief Economist at Y Analytics. We help capital allocators better understand, value and manage social and environmental impact. I am honored and grateful to be part of our amazing founding team. If you are interested in impact or might want to join our team, please check out our site.
I am also on leave as an Assistant Professor at the London School of Economics, where I teach primarily econometrics and quantitative methods. I have been teaching in LSE's amazing School of Public Policy since 2008 with the occasional detour to teach and supervise some outstanding PhD students and undergraduates as well.
I am co-director for the Firms Programme at the International Growth Centre with a focus on entrepreneurship. Much of my research is coordinated through Innovations for Poverty Action, the the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab, or the International Growth Centre, three organizations working to reduce poverty and encourage growth by ensuring that policy is based on scientific evidence.
My research focuses on combining economic theory, field experiments, and more traditional empirical analysis to understand how economic development works and how it can work better. Most of my work is in less developed countries and centers on entrepreneurship, access to finance and how firms function.
