Growing up I was interested in many, many things – from piano to math to figure skating. When time came, I decided to go for what I thought was the middle ground between them all – PPE. I finished my bachelor at the University of Essex, where, among other things, I learned about and loved stats. I decided to continue my studies at Oxford in a discipline that allowed me, as an econ and philosophy enthusiast, to study both: political science. I have since continued to mix and match different parts of these disciplines in my work. Currently, in my DPhil, I study the political economy of risk and demand for insurance in quasi-experimental settings.
