A significant part of my research and policy work revolves around the design and analysis of randomized controlled trials (RCT) and quasi-experimental evaluations of interventions aimed at improving literacy and numeracy outcomes. I have also delved into other areas, such as edtech, physical access to schools, remote learning assessments in low-tech environments, and impact evaluation methodology.
I hold a Ph.D. in Education Policy from the University of Virginia, an M.A. in Economics, also from the University of Virginia, and a B.A. in Economics from Washington and Lee University.

I currently serve as the Vice President of Measurement and Evaluation (M&E) at NewGlobe, an organization partnering with governments in low- and middle-income countries to improve learning outcomes. In this role, I lead the team responsible for planning, executing, analyzing, and reporting on impact evaluations across several countries in West Africa, East Africa, and South Asia.
My professional interests lie in understanding and enhancing educational systems in low- and middle-income countries, and how these contribute to the overall development of countries — with most of my work occurring at the intersection of education, impact evaluation, and economics.
