Welcome! I'm a Senior Economist at the World Bank, working at the intersection of public economics and development economics.
I'm interested in firms' and households' responses to taxation, and the optimal design of tax systems in a context of weak state capacity. The impact of technological change on tax systems, e.g. through electronic payment technology, is a common theme of my research.
I also work on other areas in development economics, such as the effect of unemployment on violent extremism, informal trade, and interlinked transactions in agriculture.
