Welcome! I am a Senior Economist and the Global Lead for Tax Data Analytics at the World Bank. I previously served as Research Director for TaxDev at the Institute for Fiscal Studies. I am an Honorary Associate Professor at University College London and a CEPR Affiliate.
My research lies at the intersection of public economics and development economics, with a focus on tax system design. I hold a Future Leaders Fellowship from UK Research & Innovation for my agenda using administrative tax data from 15+ countries to study questions on development, taxes and firms.
For a sneak peek into new research on urban public finance, you can see here the keynote lecture I recently gave at the WB-GWU Sustainable Cities Workshop.
