I completed my PhD in Economics at the University of Massachusetts in 2012. I am now an Assistant Professor of Global and Intercultural Studies at Miami University of Ohio and a Research Associate with the Society, Work & Development Institute at the University of the Witwatersrand.

My research focuses on labor markets/informal economies, inequality, development and gender.

My current project examines the demand for paid and unpaid care work and its impacts on nurses in a public hospital in Johannesburg, South Africa.
