I am a PhD candidate at the Development Economics group. My PhD project focuses on the links between local institutions such as traditional village authorities, economic behaviour and development outcomes. An improved understanding of these links will help us better our policy aimed at increasing the welfare of the poor, possibly at lower cost.

For my PhD research I collect data in South Kivu, DR Congo and Adamawa, Cameroon. I use surveys and lab-in-the-field experiments.
