I am a
senior lecturer (associate professor) in economics at University of East Anglia. Most of my research can be located in the
fields of behavioral and experimental economics and impact evaluation in low-income countries. The
research themes I have pursued and publish on include: social networks and
resource sharing, the functioning of rural markets, equity-efficiency trade-offs in irrigation systems,
reproductive health, repayment and impact of microfinance, the
micro-politics behind community-based development and the behavioral economics
of rural investment. I have conducted most of my fieldwork in Nicaragua,
Tanzania and Uganda.
I teach micro-economics, econometrics and
applied methods in impact evaluation at the post-graduate level and I
co-direct the MSc Impact
Evaluation for International Development. I am also
affiliated to the Center for
Behavioral and Experimental Social Sciences (CBESS).
