My research interests lie in development economics, with a focus on governance and political economy. I study these issues using lab-in-the-field experiments, quasi-natural experiments and Randomised Controlled Trials (RCTs).
I am on the job market in 2022-2023 and am available for interviews at the EJM and the ASSA.
