Interests: Development economics; behavioral economics; political economy; environmental and resource economics
I am an applied microeconomist focusing on topics in development economics. My research to date draws on insights from behavioral economics and employs econometrics, field-, and lab-in-the-field experiments to study technology diffusion and the impact that heterogeneity has on the success and optimal design of public policy. I have ongoing projects in Kenya, Nicaragua, and Fiji.
