Biography

My current research relates to economic development, law and education. It's focus is empirical, policy-oriented and I use mainly micro data. My recent research has focused for instance on the effects of birth registration on child labour and education, on the recruitment and job preferences of teachers in India and on labour laws in India. I hold a PhD in Economics from the University of Cambridge, an MSc in Economics from the University of Warwick and a MSocSc from the University of Helsinki. Prior to my PhD, I worked as a research officer at the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), London as well as at the Centre for Business Research (CBR), Cambridge.
