Thank you for visiting my web-site. I am an assistant teaching professor at the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University. My research is in the area of applied micro-econometrics for development, with a focus on basic education service delivery in sub-Saharan Africa. My current research is in Kenya, South Africa and Tanzania; past research was in Sierra Leone and Uganda. I have published in Science, the Journal of Public Economics, the Journal of Human Resources, and the Journal of Economic Behaviour and Organization.
Prior to joining McCourt, I worked for the Strategic Impact Evaluation Fund at the World Bank, was a visiting post-doctoral fellow at the Blavatnik School of Government, and also acting Research Coordinator for a multi-million research fund, Research on Improving Systems of Education (RISE). I completed my M.Phil (distinction) and D.Phil in Economics at the University of Oxford, where I was funded by the Rhodes scholarship.
