I am an Assistant Professor at the Department of Business and Economics at University of Southern Denmark (SDU). I received my BSc in Economics & Management from the London School of Economics & Political Science, and completed my MSc in Economics and PhD in Economics from the University of Essex. Before joining SDU, I was a Max Weber Fellow at the European University Institute.

I am an applied microeconomist with research interests at the intersection of health and development economics. Under health economics, my work centres around biomarkers and survival expectations, e.g. how survival expectations are formed, how they link to objective measures of health and economic actions such as savings and retirement behaviours.  My work in development economics focuses on how the creative use of applied econometric methods can help policy makers respond to challenges, such as child mortality and domestic violence, when dealing with data limitations in developing country contexts.
