I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at the Aalto University School of Business and Helsinki GSE.

My research interests lie at the intersection of development economics and political economy with a focus on economics of culture and religion. I am also interested in economic history.

I am on the 2021/2022 academic job market and will be available for interviews at EJME 2021 in December or on demand.

Please find my curriculum vitae here and my job market paper here.
