About me

I am Senior Research Associate at Yale Economic Growth Center, Adjunct Associate Professor at FAIR/Norwegian School of Economics (NHH), researcher at IIES and International Research Associate at the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS). My research is centered on policy and programmatic approaches to scaling social protection and human development services, with a particular focus on Early Childhood Development (ECD) and sanitation. My work spans the interface between measurement, the design and evaluation of low-cost, high-impact, context-appropriate services, and their scalability for national delivery and impact. I currently manage Kizazi Kijacho (‘The Next Generation’), a large-scale inter-sectoral longitudinal and experimental ECD research programme in Tanzania, hosted at IIES/Stockholm University. In recent years I have managed similar ECD programmes in Ghana and in India. In the past I have worked several years as Senior Research Economist at the Institute for Fiscal Studies (IFS), as Global Impact Evaluation Advisor at OXFAM GB and as Research Project Manager at EDI Global in Tanzania. I received my Ph.D in Economics from Oxford University (UK) and am currently based in Zimbabwe.
