I am an Assistant Professor of Political Science at New York University - Abu Dhabi.
My research interests relate to the political economy of development, with a focus on Sub-Saharan Africa. I conduct field experiments, collect original data and use statistics to better understand and make causal inferences about issues related to governance and service delivery in areas where the state is weak.
Much of my work takes place in Congo, Sierra Leone and Kenya.
In 2015, I received my Ph.D. from Columbia University. I also have an M.Phil. in economics (with distinction) from Tilburg University.
