I conduct research in Africa and Asia in order to develop answers to fundamental questions about economic development and poverty. My areas of expertise include microenterprise development, community governance, organizational learning, environmental economics and post-conflict recovery.
I am currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Connecticut in the department of Agricultural and Resource Economics. Previous to this position, I was a post-doctoral fellow in the Development and Security Department at the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW Berlin). I received my PhD in Economics from the University of California, Irvine.
