Profile picture.jpg

I’m an economics PhD student at Columbia. My interests are in the economics of development, climate change, inequality, and their intersections. Co-authored work relating to econometric estimation of climate change impacts and poverty-mapping applications of machine learning has been published in the journals Nature and Science.

I grew up in Manila, Jakarta, and Ho Chi Minh City. Since then, I’ve studied and worked in New York, London, Shanghai, Stanford, and Oxford.

I intend to use this space as a professional frontpage and to irregularly and informally share assorted links and music I find interesting. I’d like to eventually add pages curating work and datasets in my subfields of interest.
