I am a mixed methods researcher working with internet.org, Facebook’s effort to connect new users to the internet in emerging markets. My research focuses on how low-income households in emerging markets use technology, especially to manage their money. I use a mix of quantitative surveys, qualitative methods, Financial Diaries, and experimental designs to study these topics. Before joining internet.org, I led the Consumer Insights team at Bankable Frontier Associates, a niche research and consulting firm focusing on financial inclusion. I have also worked in evaluation at the World Bank and with the United Nations Development and Environment Programs. I hold a Master’s degree from the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University and a Bachelors from Stanford University.
