Scholarly Interests

My research agenda is to answer policy questions with rigorous evidence and economic theory and, in turn, to use those answers to substantially improve welfare in the developing world. Within this broad goal, my research focuses on three main themes: studying the distributional impacts of national education and health policy decisions, evaluating targeted interventions designed to help the most vulnerable, and improving our tools of causal inference.
