I am a Senior Economist at the World Bank currently based in Dakar, Senegal. I work on helping governments design, implement and evaluate social protection and employment programs in West Africa.
Before joining the World Bank in 2012, I was Research and Policy Fellow at SALDRU, within the University of Cape Town, South Africa. From 2008 to 2010 I was Executive Director of J-PAL South Asia in Chennai, India.
I earned a Ph.D. in Economics from the Paris School of Economics.
