DPhil student

I am a doctoral student at the Oxford Department of Psychiatry and a research assistant at the Centre for the Studies of African Economies (CSAE) at the Blavatnik School of Government.

In my DPhil, supervised by Prof. Alan Stein, I am exploring the relationship between poverty and mental health, and the development of decision-making and risk-taking during adolescence.

Prior to commencing my DPhil, I studied Economics at Carlos III University of Madrid and at UC Berkeley and hold an MSc in Economics for Development from the University of Oxford. In between my studies, I worked as a Research Analyst in the Global Economy and Development program at The Brookings Institution.
