Welcome to my web page. I am an Economist at the World Bank in Washington DC, working on firm capabilities and innovation policies, in the Finance, Competitiveness and Innovation Global Practice.

Before starting at the World Bank, I was a Lecturer in Economics at The Queen’s College, University of Oxford and a doctoral student at the Department of Economics and the Centre for the Study of African Economies (CSAE) at the University of Oxford.

Working papers



On this website I occasionally post code for Stata and LaTeX that could be useful for other users.

  • The Stata package xlsheet, which allows for the creation of Excel worksheets including graphs straight from Stata. (Code coming soon.)
  • The Stata package lablogger, which allows for the generation of a TeX document with tables and graphs straight out of Stata can be found here.

Note: The findings, interpretations, and conclusions expressed on this website are entirely those of the author(s) and should not be attributed to the World Bank, its Executive Directors, or the countries they represent.
