Thank you for visiting my web-site. I am an assistant teaching professor at the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University. Prior to to joining McCourt, I worked for the Strategic Impact Evaluation Fund at the World Bank and was also a visiting post-doctoral fellow at the Blavatnik School of Government.
My research relates primarily to questions of public service provision of basic education in sub-Saharan Africa. I am currently involved on three different field experiments of education programs and reform – in South Africa, Nepal, and Uganda. In past research, I evaluated a community reconciliation program in Sierra Leone (published in Science) and conducted a field experiment on foreigner presence and generosity in Sierra Leone (published in Journal of Economic Behavior and Organization)
