Ideas:
“  My research interests are focused on development economics and environmental economics. One strand of my research explores how natural resource booms affect local welfare, with specific focus on labor markets, health and gender equality. Another strand focuses on the economics of health and gender, exploring transmission of information within the household, nutrition, stigma, access to sanitation for adolescent girls and the WASH sector. I use empirical methods including quasi-experiments, lab experiments in the field and randomized control trials.  ”
