I obtained a PhD in Economics from the University of Sussex in 2016. I hold an MSc in Economics from the University of Copenhagen, Denmark, and a BA in Economics from Addis Ababa University, Ethiopia. My research areas broadly lie in applied micro and macro aspects of development particularly the role of human capital (education, health, and nutrition) in economic performance, public policy, structural transformation, and applied econometrics. My further research interests include the measure and role of management practices in firm performance and public institutions, unemployment in developing countries, and well-being. I have administered surveys and field experiments for the Centre for the Study of African Economies, University of Oxford (Light manufacturing in Addis Ababa); the Centre for Economic Performance, the London School of Economics (for firms in Ethiopia, Kenya, Ghana, and Tanzania), and the World Bank (school surveys in Tanzania. During my stay at Sussex as a PhD student, I taught macroeconomics and microeconomics for first and second-year undergraduate students.
