Ma
arten Voors is an Associate Professor at the Development Economics Group (DEC), Wageningen University. I received my PhD from Wageningen University in 2011 (with honors) and was an Isaac Newton Trust Post-Doctoral Fellow at the Department of Land Economy, University of Cambridge 2011-2013.

My main field is development economics. My research focuses on institutions, (post-conflict) development and behavior and I use a variety of methods including surveys, lab and field experiments and econometric analysis. I have conducted field research in Burundi, Sierra Leone, Liberia, DRC and elsewhere. Recent projects focus on institutions in development, rural electrification and efforts to prevent deforestation.

I am a member of the Wageningen Young Academy, and Evidence in Governance and Politics (EGAP), I am involved with the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences as a BITSS Catalyst and a Fellow at the Cambridge Centre for Environment, Energy and Natural Resource Governance (C-EENRG).
