Research Assistant

Research Interests

I am a young researcher interested in how we can use quantitative data to understand and contribute to Human Development.

I am currently working on projects that study Migration aspirations, determinants and the Migration-Development nexus.

I am also interested in the study of the determinants of vulnerability to disasters and the interaction between them and armed conflict.
