I am a Senior Economist and Research Program Manager at Development Impact Evaluation department (DIME) at the World Bank, and I sometimes blog at Development Impact. I studied applied math at Paris Dauphine, received a magistère in economics from Paris 1-ENS Ulm-EHESS (aka, Paris School of Economics), a PhD in economics from the University of London, and I was a Postdoctoral Fellow at Columbia University. My main interests are in development, labor, conflict and agricultural economics. I founded and lead the Bank’s impact evaluation program in Agricultural Adaptations, which I run in close collaboration with researchers and practitioners across a large number of donor institutions, governments, NGOs, and academic institutions. A full program description is here, and recent presentations of the results from this work are here and here.

I co-founded DIME Analytics to help generate and curate more, better data for impact evaluation. The team now maintains a Wiki and shares content on GitHub (i.e., ieToolkit and LaTeX templates).

I am currently running experiments in the fields of agriculture, justice, infrastructure, social protection, and transport.
