I am an Assistant Professor in Economics at the National University of Singapore.

My research focuses on how formal and informal institutions shape behavior and socio-economic outcomes. I have completed two large-scale field experiments in Bangladesh, one studying how performance scorecards can change the behavior of government bureaucrats and another about the effects of village courts. I am also researching the effects of the #MeToo movement on the reporting of sexual crimes to the police.

Currently, I am starting up several research projects focused on reducing the harms of air pollution in South Asia.
