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

My research focuses on institutions, (post-conflict) development and behavior. I use a variety of methods including surveys, lab and field experiments and econometric analysis. My field research has centered around Burundi, Sierra Leone, Liberia and DRC. Recent projects include field experiments on formal and informal institutions in development and the role of social networks in technology adoption.

I am Training Director for Evidence in Governance and Politics (EGAP) and organise Learning Days on Experimental Methods (link). I am involved with the Berkeley Initiative for Transparency in the Social Sciences as a BITSS Catalyst.
