Constantine Manda

I am currently a PhD candidate in the Department of Political Science at Yale University

Prior to Yale I was the Senior Research Analyst at Twaweza.  I worked on randomized controlled trials aimed at improving education outcomes in Tanzania. The experiments are collectively called KiuFunza, a portmanteau of the Kiswahili words that mean "thirst to learn". Part of my work also involved liaising with internationally acclaimed research institutions such as IPAJ-PAL, CGD, CEGA, among others.  

I have consulted with various organizations including REPOA, Tanzania's Financial Sector Deepening Trust (FSDT) and the World Bank. 

I write academic articles and policy briefs for publication, and also contribute on a popular youth-centered blog called VijanaFM as well as the Washington Post's Monkey Cage.

I have also instructed on impact evaluation, political economy and development economics at the University of Dar es Salaam's Economics Department, the Economic and Social Research Foundation (ESRF), the African School of Economics, and Strathmore Business School.

I am a World Economic Forum Global Shaper with the Dar es Salaam Hub (since 2013) but formerly of the New York City Hub (2015 - 2017).

I was a CEGA Fellow (Fall 2012) at the University of California at Berkeley and worked with CEGA-affiliated Professors and PhD students at the University of California at Berkeley's Economics Department

I am also a member (2015-2018) of the Research and Development Advisory Committee on Basic Science at Tanzania's Commission for Science and Technology (COSTECH).
