Hans Rosling

once told me that if I wanted to explain intangible concepts such as "inflation" and "economic growth" to the public, I must be able to tell them a good story. Because people can relate and empathize with stories.

My goal with this blog is to make macroeconomics accessible to non-economists. My hope is to provide visual narratives that do not need complicated explanations; though I will occasionally share some machine learning code.

I leverage technology to explore, and communicate interesting data insights to economists and public audiences.

I have always had this idea

of building a platform where I can bridge the gap between the layman and the macroeconomist.

In today's day and age where everything is open-sourced and shared, I believe in empowering people with the tools needed to understand the dynamics of today's world. I do not believe in "proprietary" macroeconomic models that are opaque and non-replicable.

We don't need jargon to make ourselves sound smart.

Who am I?

I am currently a student of Social Data Science at the University of Oxford, Keble College.

My research interests are economic networks and financial technologies.

My former life

I hung my hat as a researcher at the International Monetary Fund, where I worked as a staff analyst for the past six-and-a-half years. It taught me a lot about the global macroeconomy, and most importantly, it gave me access to massive macroeconomic databases.
