My PhD research focuses on urban and regional economics with an emphasis on urban development, migration, climate change impacts and public policy evaluation in developing countries.
Prior to my PhD, I worked for the World Bank as a consultant on several national infrastructure projects in Indonesia and on industrial policy/regional planning in South Africa. I have also worked as a Senior Researcher at the Development Policy Research Unit at the University of Cape Town School of Economics and as a Visiting Researcher at the South African Institute of International Affairs, and have contributed to papers/reports for IZA, UN-Habitat and UNDP.
I hold an MRes in public policy economics (Paris School of Economics), an MSc in urban planning (Darmstadt University of Technology), and a BSocSci in economics, politics and philosophy (University of Cape Town).
