I am currently a PhD candidate for a top-tier UK institution. My focus is on macroeconomics and public finance and I have experience in research spanning six years. I obtained my Bachelor’s degree in economics and statistics in 2009 and a Master’s in economics and finance. I began my career in the public policy sector as an assistant statistician at the Central Bank in 2010 before moving to an academic position as a graduate teaching assistant. I have also been in the role of an operations manager at a private contracting firm.
