I am interested in organizations and how organizational practices affect productivity and labour outcomes across countries and industries. My research field is applied microeconomics, with a focus on emerging economies and developing countries. Research questions I am currently working on include why family firms have worse management practices (and what to do about it), how school management and personnel policies affect teacher effort and student outcomes, how personnel management affects wages and other employee outcomes in manufacturing firms, and how female leadership influences organizational practices.
I am a Research Fellow at the Blavatnik School of Government in the RISE Programme, a Research Officer at the London School of Economics in the Centre for Economic Performance, and a Project Director for the World Management Survey and partner of the Development WMS.
Fields: Organizational economics, development economics
