Before Yale, I was a senior research analyst at Twaweza, an international NGO, where I worked on a series of randomized experiments aimed at improving education outcomes in Tanzania. The inaugural experiment is now published at the Quarterly Journal of Economics with co-authors Isaac Mbiti, Karthik Muralidharan, Maurico Romero, Youdi Schipper, and Rakesh Rajani.

With Donald Green and Dylan Groves, I am currently conducting a randomized experiment in Tanzania studying the effects of video dramas and radio programming on attitudes, behaviors, and perceived norms concerning gender-based violence and inequality.

I am the co-founder of the Network for Impact Evaluation Researchers in Africa and have served as a member of advisory groups for Tanzania’s Commission for Science and Technology (COSTECH) and the Advisory Group on Impact Evaluation at the University of Johannesburg. I have written regularly about Tanzanian politics for both Tanzanian and U.S. outlets.

I am also helping Tanzania’s Economic and Social Research Foundation (ESRF) setup the Impact Evaluation Lab serving as its inaugural Director working to expand impact evaluation work in Tanzania.
