I received my bachelor's degree from the University of Toronto, where I majored in Management & International Business and minored in African Studies. Sports analytics, innovations in farming, consumer switching costs, complexity theory, target analysis, and innovation ecosystems were among the research studies I accomplished during my undergraduate degree. I also worked for Johnson & Johnson for three years during my studies.
My dissertation will compare and contrast the function that precolonial and postcolonial credit networks play in local economic development. In doing so, it will aim to examine traditional, alternative, and “modern” forms of credit lending, including retail banks, community lending programs, and micro-finance institutions.
