I am a development economist with a focus on global health, gender, and development. I have used randomized controlled trials, lab-in-the-field experiments, and natural experiments to study the health decisions of vulnerable women, gender discrimination in developing country labor markets, and cognitive constraints among the poor. I have previous or ongoing experiments in Ethiopia, Kenya, the Philippines, and Senegal.
