I am an applied microeconomist, with research interests in development, health and environmental economics. My research primarily focuses on three areas: (i) the causes and consequences of domestic violence and its transmission across generations; (ii) the social and economic determinants of mental health; (iii) the economic responses to water scarcity and water pollution in developed and developing countries.

I  am currently an associate editor at the Economic Development and Cultural Change and a research fellow at the IZA Institute of Labor Economics.

I am on sabbatical during the academic year of 2023-2024 and serving as a research fellow at the Women and Public Policy Program of the Harvard Kennedy School.
