Biography

I am PhD candidate in economics and this is my fifth year in the program. My current research lies in synthesizing the literature of international finance and sustainable development to analyze cross-border capital flows and global imbalances and, hence, draw policy implications.

My favorite quote is by George Box who once said, “All models are wrong. Some are useful."
