BIO

The core focus of my research is a micro analysis of human behaviour. My areas of expertise include the economics of human development, health economics, early child development and education, and methods for evaluating policy interventions. Over the last ten years I have developed, led, and consolidated a large research programme dedicated to evaluating the effectiveness of early childhood intervention programmes using experimental and quasi-experimental designs. I have a particular interest in developing and applying new statistical and methodology techniques to improve the internal and external validity of randomised controlled trials.
