I am an Assistant Professor in the Evans School of Public Policy and Governance and an Adjunct Assistant Professor in the Department of Economics at the University of Washington.

My teaching and research are concentrated in the fields of development economics, agricultural economics, econometrics, and behavioral economics. Most of my field work takes place in east Africa. Lately I have been working on issues related to market failure and market development, seasonality, ICT, measuring demand for agricultural technologies, and links between agriculture and human capital development.

Rachel Heath and I co-organize the Joint Seminar in Development Economics at the University of Washington.

Together with Dan Posner and Ted Miguel I co-organize 2-3 meetings each year of the Working Group in African Political Economy.
