Welcome to my Website!

I am a data scientist and an economist by training. My research focuses on analyzing massive datasets to understand human behavior, using techniques from econometrics, network science, and machine learning. I am also a firm believer in the power of the data revolution to drastically improve lives at a global scale.

I am currently part of the Big Data program at the World Bank. I am also a visiting researcher at NYU Computer Science and at the Northeastern Network Science Institute, a fellow at the Harvard Institute for Quantitative Social Science, and a senior research affiliate at Data-Pop Alliance.

Prior to that, I completed my PhD at New-York University under the supervision of Xavier Gabaix, Romain Ranciere, Lakshmi Subramanian, and Arun Sundararajan, and my post-doc at the Network Science Institute with Laszlo Barabasi, David Lazer, and Chris Riedl.

To clear my mind, I enjoy practicing Vipassana meditation, modo yoga, and relaxing and the Banya
