I'm an Associate Research Fellow in the Poverty, Health, and Nutrition Division (PHND) at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI).  I obtained my PhD in Economics at the University of Oxford, and was an AMID Fellow at Bocconi University in Milan.  


My research focuses on empirical development microeconomics, and within that sphere, on public and labour economics.  My research interests include incentives and accountability in the public sector, education, nutrition, and risk.  My research has studied the incentives generated by the promotion system for public servants in Gansu province, China, the effects of caste on learning outcomes in Pakistan, and teacher accountability systems in Uganda and Pakistan.


Before starting my PhD, I worked as an Economist/ODI Fellow at the Ministry of Education in Ghana.
