I'm a Research Fellow in the Poverty, Health, and Nutrition Division (PHND) at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and a non-resident Fellow at the Consortium for Development Policy Research (CDPR).  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, social protection, and technology adoption.  My work has focused on incentives and accountability of educators in China, Uganda, and Pakistan, as well as caste and learning outcomes in Pakistan, agricultural technology adoption and counterfeiting in Uganda, and nutrition and social protection in Bangladesh and Egypt.


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