I am a chargé de recherche (equivalent to Assistant Professor) at the Paris School of Economics / INRA.
I will be visiting the University of California Berkeley as a Fulbright Scholar in Spring Semester 2016.
My research interests lie around commitment problems and corruption, with a particular focus on infrastructure and property rights in developing countries - for more information, see my research page or Google Scholar profile. I teach a course entitled 'Economics of Regulation in Developing Countries' on the Public Policy and Development Masters at PSE.
I completed my PhD in 2010 at the University of Oxford, supervised by John Vickers and Steve Bond. The focus of the thesis was on the ways in which infrastructure regulation in developing countries needs to be different from that in more developed countries. After my PhD, I was an Overseas Development Institute Fellow, employed as an Economist in the Ministry of Finance and Development Planning in Malawi. There I worked mostly on social protection and macroeconomics. I have also worked as a consultant for the World Bank, Inter-American Development Bank, Center for Global Development, Tax Justice Network, Resolution Foundation and Institute for Fiscal Studies.
