I am a chargé de recherche (equivalent to Assistant/Associate Professor) at the Paris School of Economics / INRA.
My research interests lie mainly around the topics of development, regulation, infrastructure, land and corruption - 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.
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. A complete CV can be found here.
I will be visiting the University of California in spring semester 2016.
