WHO I AM
My work is concerned with the economic choices governments and people make, and how these decisions affect the day-to-day quality of life in developing economies.
More specifically, my passion and the bulk of my work lies in electricity infrastructure. Few realms have such a pervasive impact on populations, permeating through the key areas of life that determine your education and opportunities in work and beyond. My work has the ultimate goal of contributing to improving living standards. I want what I do to help create a level starting point for every bright mind.
I decided to become a trained economist in order to wrap my mind around what causes and hinders economic growth. Throughout my studies this question led me to found initiatives and work for global institutions that implement solutions to on-the-ground problems in both developing and industrialized countries. These include the World Bank, where I contributed to a rethinking effort for the infrastructure division's approach to power sector reform.
Today, as I finalize my PhD, I am putting the lion's share of my energy into being an early career investor on Wellington Management's sustainable investing team.
I founded and lead AspireXAccess, an incubator program with a mission to work with socially disadvantaged youth, developing tools for tackling critical life junctures.
I live in Oxford and will soon move to London.
