I am a Postdoctoral Scholar at the University of Chicago, Harris School of Public Policy.
I am also a visiting researcher at Stanford University and an invited researcher at JPAL North America.

I am a behavioral public economist. My research focuses on topics related to (i) human capital formation (labor and education), and (ii) the interaction citizens have with their governments (welfare assistance, institutional trust). I use a combination of field, lab, and survey experiment methods, often in partnership with government and private sector organizations, to inform evidence-based decisions that can improve people's lives.  

My research has been published in journals such as Games and Economic Behavior and the Journal of Policy Analysis and Management. My work has also been highlighted in media outlets including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, among others. 

Prior to reentering academia, I was the Head of Labor Markets at the Behavioral Insights Team, where I worked with government agencies in Australia, New Zealand, the Philippines  to improve programs using behavioral science and to build capacity around rigorous evaluation. I also worked as a consultant for the United Nations and the European Commission.

My name is pronounced "Goo-yell-mo Bree-shae-sae"
