Youth Impact

I am a Research Associate at Youth Impact. I obtained my Ph.D. in Economics at the University of Amsterdam under the supervision of prof. Menno Pradhan and prof. Hessel Oosterbeek. In my dissertation research, I studied the impacts of education policy reforms on learning outcomes in Indonesia, as part of the Research on Improving Systems of Education (RISE) program.

Previously, I worked on impact evaluations of interventions in early childhood development, food security and water and sanitation access in Asia and Africa.
