I am an experimental economist interested in studying personal networks. I was first attracted to network analysis because I realized the importance social networks (like immigrant or ethnic networks) have in international trade. I then helped design lab experiments that investigated the role of networks in improving market efficiency when contracts were not perfectly enforceable (like in international markets). Some of my previous research is related to economic development and I am excited about understanding how support networks can improve health outcomes for mothers and children in Uganda.
