I am a development economist and doctoral researcher at the University of Nottingham exploring the political economy of economic policy reform in developing countries. I am also affiliated with the Overseas Development Institute. Before returning to academia, I worked as an economic adviser to the national governments of Burundi and South Sudan.
My research is focussed 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 governement's fiscal capacity. My current work looks at the links between taxation and accountability.
