Heidi Kaila

I am a Post-Doctoral Fellow at the College of Human Ecology & Field of Economics at Cornell University. I work on a broad range of issues in development economics, mostly using household survey data. My areas of interest are information technology, conflict and human capital. I got my PhD in Economics at the University of Copenhagen in 2017.

Before joining Cornell, I worked with the World Bank in Nigeria on telephone surveys on conflict and food insecurity. Before my PhD I was a research assistant at UNU-WIDER (United Nations University -World Institute of Development Economics Research). I have a Master's and a Bachelor's degree in Economics from the University of Helsinki.
