I am a chair (professor) in development economics at the 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: gender, reproductive health, the behavioral economics of rural investment, social networks and resource sharing, the functioning of rural markets, equity-efficiency trade-offs in irrigation systems, repayment and impact of microfinance, and the micro-politics behind community-based development. 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).
