I am an economist with research interests in applied economics in the fields of health, migration and development.On 20 January 2016 I defended my PhD in Economics at The Institute for Social & Economic Research (ISER), University of Essex, under the supervision of Adeline Delavande (Professor of Economics) and Sonia Bhalotra (Professor of Economics). In my thesis I empirically examine two aspects of demographic change in the form of survival expectations among the elderly and child mortality.My research at the EUI explores differences in return migration expectations amongst first-generation ethnic minority migrants by conducting two targeted experiments in the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates.I am experienced in teaching both undergraduates and postgraduates from diverse disciplinary backgrounds. I am able to teach most economic modules at the undergraduate level and more specialised modules on health and development economics at the postgraduate level.
