About me

I am a recent graduate from the School of International Development at the University of East Anglia. I have an master’s degree in Development Economics and previous to this I undertook a bachelor’s degree in Economics. In addition, my research on the links between natural resources, inequality and poverty was awarded the Best Dissertation Prize in 2012. My interests are primarily in natural resource management; the macroeconomic aspects of economic development; income inequality; and institutional approaches to economic development.

I currently work at a consultancy based in the UK where I work on the EU’s Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Evaluation of Chemicals policy (REACH).  Prior to this I undertook an internship at the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) where I conducted research on industrial diversification, private sector development and social enterprises.

I also worked full time at a store selling machinery and industrial equipment to businesses around my local area.  This job allowed me to interact with a wide variety of customers and I believe it has given me a sense of what really matters to people and businesses in terms of the economy today.
