I am reading for the M.Phil in economics at Nuffield College, University of Oxford and will be beginning a PhD in economics at Columbia University in the fall. My interests are in the economics of development, climate change, inequality, and their intersections.
I grew up in Manila, the Philippines; Jakarta, Indonesia; and Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam before enrolling at NYU Stern for my bachelor’s degree. After graduation, I worked at Stanford on projects related to poverty mapping and climate econometrics.
I intend to use this space as a professional frontpage and to 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.
Also, I’ve started making New York Times-style crosswords for my friends. Let me know if you solve them or get stuck!
