Welcome to my website!

A first-generation Visiting Assistant Professor of Economics at Colby College in Waterville, Maine, USA.  With a Ph.D. in Economics from Colorado State University (USA), an MSc in Economics from Umeå University (Sweden), an MBA from Copperbelt University (Zambia), and a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Zambia, I bring exciting ideas to the table. 

My research focuses on Development Economics, particularly early childhood conditions. My Ph.D. dissertation investigated the link between access to services and later life outcomes in some low- and middle-income countries. I'm excited to start on new research projects, especially issues related to three themes: expanding my ongoing development projects to explore growth in African countries and understanding global public health.

When not doing academia, I like to travel with my lovely wife, Michelo. I enjoy good food, music and sports!
