I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago, Harris School of Public Policy and hold a PhD in Economics from Columbia University.
I am a research fellow at IGC, JPAL-CVI, NBER (DEV, PE), a distinguished fellow at CESifo, and was a CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholar and a scholar at the Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies.
In 2015, I co-founded Marakuja Kivu Research, a data collection organization in D.R. Congo. I am now one of its academic advisors.
My work is mostly in DR Congo, and was part of a documentary, Congo Calling.
