Personal Statement

I am a first year PhD student and my research interests lie in the intersection of economic and political inequality and development. I plan to study how political institutions affect levels of economic inequality and various policies concerning minorities and the underprivileged. Regionally, I'm interested in Asia and Africa. Prior to pursuing my Ph.D., I served as a Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) research fellow in Holeta, Ethiopia. I also worked as a journalist in Seoul, South Korea, focusing on minority rights and education. I hold a Master of Public Policy from Seoul National University an a B.A. in Economics from UC Berkeley.
