About

I am a PhD student in the Department of Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota. I also work as a Research Assistant at the Institute for Social Research and Data Innovation (ISRDI) with the Integrated Public Use Microdata Series (IPUMS). 

I received my MS degree in the Department of Agricultural, Food, and Resource Economics (AFRE) at Michigan State University. Previously I was a Research Associate in the Global Development Lab at USAID in Washington DC and a Evaluation Analyst at the Africa Theological Seminary in Kitale, Kenya.

I am a graduate of Calvin College where I completed a B.A. in Economics and a minor in International Development with a focus in African Studies.
