In the fall of 2013, while living in Kitale—a town in Western Kenya—I remember reading through several job market papers posted in blog form on the World Bank’s Development Impact blog. The experience, in part, inspired me to pursue graduate studies in development economics.
Those of you who have previously visited my blog may notice that there are several new features on this website. These changes are necessary partly because this website began as a travel blog during my senior year in college while I was studying at the University of Ghana. (For those interested, check out some of my reflections from that time.) These changes are also necessary because this website has become a more professional outlet for me and I am preparing to go on the job market.
