I received my Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Kansas in May 2017,  where I developed my research in the field of Macroeconomics, International Economics, Economic Development, and Applied Econometrics. Currently, my research covers topics such as: Wealth Inequality and Property Ownership; Regime-Switching Pro-cyclical Government Spending; Inter-Regional Foreign Direct Investment; Foreign Aid and Fiscal Policy. I also received an M.A. in Economics in 2011, and a B.A. in Mathematics and Economics (Honors) in 2009, all from the University of Kansas.
I have served as a consultant and a researcher for various national and international organization such as: The United Nations - World Institute for Development and Economic Research (UNU-WIDER); the American Institute for Economic Research (AIER); the International Growth Center (IGC) of the London School of Economics; and the African Development Bank Group. I worked on research topics that covered topics such as Access to Finance, Foreign Direct Investment, Foreign Aid, and the Role of Institutions.
Currently, I am the Senior Research Economist for the Kansas Department of Commerce, where I am responsible for the implementation of research projects that evaluate the effectiveness of, federal and state funded, programs that facilitate economic development, and employment within Kansas. I evaluate the impact of prospective projects, and the recruitment of companies on the Kansas economy, and provide timely data and analysis to assist policy makers in the formulation of social and economic policies.
