I am a development economist at the Institute of Development Studies (IDS) and a PhD Candidate at the University of Nottingham. I work as an economist for the International Centre for Tax and Development (ICTD). Previously, I worked as an economic advisor to the Ministry of Finance of Burundi, the Burundi Revenue Authority and the Ministry of Finance of South Sudan.
My research focusses on the fiscal capacity of states across sub-Saharan Africa. Given my interdisciplinary background, I maintain primary research interests in the political and societal factors that affect the government's fiscal capacity. I am also involved in teaching Public Financial Management.
