Research

I study competition in global value chains: its measurement, how it is shaped by policy, and how it shapes the lives of firms and individuals in emerging economies.

I am a PhD Candidate in Economics at Yale University. I will be on the job market in 2020-2021, attending the Virtual AEA and EEA Meetings.
