I am currently doing research on blended finance in least developed countries. My research interests focus on financing for development agenda, particularly rising phenomenon that public finance (such as ODA) increasingly blends with private investment in developing countries and exploring their impacts on Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises. I have 8 years of professional experiences in the field of international development, working for a donor agency and UN organisations. Prior to entering this field, I worked in investment banking sector for 5 years. I hold an MA in Globalisation and Development at the Institute of Development Studies, UK.
