My current  research  interest is focused  in  three  broad  areas  of  development  and  political 
economics: (i) understanding voter behavior, i.e. turnout decisions and candidate choices, (ii) the effects 
of shocks (i.e. civil conflict, pollution) on human capital accumulation, and (iii) the determinants of human 
capital investments.
