Overview and research interests:

My research interests include the role of finance in development strategies and my doctoral research examines the relationship between financial inclusion policies and financial citizenship. I am specifically interested in how products of inclusive finance, including micro-credit and mobile money, are designed especially for those who do not use mainstream banking institutions and how the market for financial services tends to be bifurcated as a result.
