I'm an Economics PhD Job Market candidate for 2022-2023. I recently obtained my PhD in Economics from the University of New South Wales in Sydney (UNSW). My thesis, titled ‘Essays in Development Economics’ was completed under the supervision of Professor Pauline Grosjean and Dr Sarah Walker. It predominantly focuses on issues pertaining to gender, education and socio-economic insecurity especially in times of economic crises.

For my job market paper, I worked on a randomised control trial to assess the impact of positive classroom-based activities on improving learning outcomes for school age children in low-income settings.

I received my MSc in Economic History from the London School of Economics (LSE) in 2016 and BSc (Hons) in Economics from the Lahore University of Management Sciences (LUMS) in 2015.
