Interests: Development economics; behavioral economics; political economy; environmental and resource economics
I am an applied microeconomist with research interests in development economics, behavioral economics, and political economy. My research to date draws on insights from behavioral economics, and employs econometrics and field experiments to study technology diffusion and the optimal design of public policy. I have research projects in Kenya, Nicaragua, Ghana and Fiji, on topics ranging from learning over social networks, to subjective expectations and technology adoption, to media content and political participation.
