I am a Ph.D. candidate in Applied Economics and Management at Cornell University. I will be joining the International Monetary Fund's Economist Program (EP) from September 2021.

My areas of expertise are public finance and development economics. I study the responsiveness of taxpayers to tax policy, and research the distributional and revenue effects of evolving fiscal regimes in advanced and developing country contexts. 

Since 2019, I have provided technical guidance on the design of property taxation to the provincial governments of Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa in Pakistan.

Prior to enrolling at Cornell, I received a Master of Public Policy from the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities as a Fulbright Scholar, and conducted research at the World Bank and the Center for Economic Research in Pakistan (CERP).
