I am a Ph.D. Candidate in Economics at the School of Economics and Finance, Massey University, New Zealand. My research interests are in the areas of natural resource economics, development economics, and empirical microeconomics. I am particularly interested in the welfare of households living in resource-rich areas in developing countries, including the effects of corporate social responsibility and pollution arising from mining activities.
Before commencing my doctoral studies, I worked as a national consultant for projects implemented by the World Bank and the United Nations Development Programme at the Ministry of Finance, Mongolia. I hold a Master of International Development from Tsinghua University, China, and a Bachelor of Arts in Economics from American University in Bulgaria.
