About Me

I am a Research Fellow of the WSD Handa Center for Human Rights and International Justice at Stanford University, where I conduct research on corruption and its implications on public good provision and social welfare. In recent work, I propose a structural model that can simultaneously estimate the theft of government revenues and bribery from public spending.

I am also a PhD candidate in Political Science at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This would be my second PhD – I obtained a PhD in Economics from the University of Nottingham, UK in 2006.

From 2007 to 2012, I was an Assistant Professor at the University of the Philippines School of Economics. I was promoted to Associate Professor in 2013, just before I began the PhD at UW-Madison.
