I am a Senior Research Associate at Public Finance Research Cluster (PRFC) at Andrew Young School of Policy Studies. My research interests are public, labor economics, and development economics. My dissertation topic focuses on fiscal and political decentralization and its effect on corruption and climate change

My research studies the role of political insitutions, namely political parties, in a fiscally and/or politically decentralized environment. My broader interest lies with the study of federalism and subnational government policymaking. 

Prior to the Phd studies, I did my master’s in finance from University of North Texas.
