I am a Postdoctoral Fellow at the Empirical Studies of Conflict Project (ESOC) at Princeton University. Previously, I worked at the University of Oxford, and I hold a Ph.D. from the London School of Economics and Political Science.
In my research, I investigate topics relating to development, conflict and security, and natural resources and the environment. I authored a paper on so-called ‘conflict diamonds’ and a paper asking how drone strikes killing terrorist leaders affect terrorist attacks.
Currently, I’m working on a Randomized Controlled Trial investigating whether community monitoring can decrease deforestation in Uganda (part of Metaketa III), on a lab-in-the-field experiment designed to reveal how recalling violent conflict changes the deep determinants of individuals’ behaviour and on a project on the extractive industries and conflict.
