I am an economist and Fellow/Senior Policy Fellow (~advanced Assistant Professor in the U.S.) at the Development Policy Centre and the Crawford School of Public Policy at the Australian National University. My research interests lie at the intersection of development economics, international trade, and the environment, with a current focus on labor mobility and economic development.

I completed my Ph.D. in Economics at the ANU and subsequently held academic appointments in the Department of Economics at Dartmouth College and the Center on Food Security and Environment at Stanford University. Prior to and during my doctoral study I worked in the Australian Government—mostly on fiscal, education, and evaluation policy—and global development.
