I am a Finance PhD Candidate at Cass Business School in London and currently a visiting scholar at the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. My research interests include ESG (Environmental, Social & Governance) Finance, Development Finance, Illicit Financial Flows and Social Banking. Through the course of my research, I hope to address difficult topics that combine financial, environmental and social sustainability. I recently worked as a Consultant at the World Bank’s Development Economics Research Group (DECRG), Finance and Private Sector Research team.
In addition to my research, I enjoy all forms of fitness and travel. From temple running in Myanmar to full distance triathlons in Germany, I connect travel and fitness whenever and wherever possible. I am a strong supporter for healthier and sustainable lifestyles that promote natural fats, vegetables and “real” food based nutrition. Lowering the amount of sugar and meat based products is important for mental health, athletic performance and global progress and I advocate for these causes during every race. For me, work, travel, research, sports and a healthy diet are all part of a necessary combination to keep moving forward.
