I currently lead the Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Development at the University of Oxford.
At the University, I am also affiliated with Nuffield College, the Centre for the Study of African Economies (CSAE), and the Mind & Behaviour Research Group. Before my current role at the Martin School, I was a Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow in the Department of Economics.
My research interest lies at the intersection of development, labor, and behavioral economics. Most of my work uses laboratory and field experiments in close cooperation with partner organizations, combined with original data collection. My fieldwork currently focuses on Ethiopia.
I also serve as a consultant on various projects of the World Bank’s Social Protection & Jobs Global Practice in Sub-Saharan Africa and Europe.
