I received a BSc in Economics from the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania in 2006 and a PhD in Economics in 2012 from Yale University. I am a Faculty Research Fellow of the NBER, a Research Affiliate of the IGC, and an affiliate of the Montreal Partnership for Human Resource Management (MPHRM). 

I am also the co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer of the Good Business Lab, a non-profit seeking to promote investment in worker welfare as a business imperative. 

My recent work focuses on enterprise, firm, and worker characteristics and decision-making (e.g., labor contracting, worker training, managerial quality) and the resulting performance dynamics, particularly in developing countries. On these topics, I have both on-going and completed field work in the US, Mexico, Kenya, Tanzania, Colombia, and India.

Other projects undertake empirical microeconomic analyses of individual and household decisions and behaviors regarding health, schooling and sectoral choice. My broad research interests lie in development, organization, personnel, and health.

Please visit my research page for titles of and links to the most recent drafts of my work.

In addition to research, I am interested in music. I have been active in music composition, performance, and production for nearly two decades. My latest releases have been under the project jugalBand.   Please visit my other interests page of my personal website for information on my work in music and links to my other sites.
