I am a development economist and Lecturer (Assistant Professor) at the University of East Anglia in Norwich, UK.
My research focuses on motivation and decision-making in public and private sector contexts. My work is at the intersection of policy, economics, and management, and uses a combination of survey methods, lab, and field experiments. To date, I have conducted field research in Burkina Faso, Indonesia, Pakistan, the Philippines, and the US. My work has provided policy guidance to the governments of Indonesia, the Philippines, and Burkina Faso. My empirical work is also featured in the World Bank’s World Development Report 2015: Mind, Society, and Behavior, and World Development Report 2017: Governance and the Law.
