About me

I study the origins of culture and institutions, how these two forces interact, and the effect this interaction has on economic outcomes. I then build on these insights to design and evaluate public policies. I achieve this by combining quasi-experimental approaches and randomized field experiments with behavioral experiments. My current projects are based in Ethiopia, Germany, India, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
