I am Director of the Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Development at the University of Oxford. We are a research group working on labor markets and livelihoods in low- and middle-income countries.
At the University, I am also affiliated with the Department of Economics, Nuffield College, the Centre for the Study of African Economies (CSAE), and the Mind & Behaviour Research Group. Before my current role, I was a Postdoctoral Prize Research Fellow at Nuffield College and the Department of Economics. Before academia, I worked at the World Bank and the Center for Global Development.
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. Much of my fieldwork focuses on Ethiopia.
