Ongoing and completed projects

Ongoing field Studies

I am interested in the determinants of aggression and political violence. My current projects use field experiments to understand how employment and behavioral interventions reduce poverty and social instability.

Several projects work with potentially unstable youth populations in post-conflict nations–ex-combatants, petty criminals, street youth, and refugees–to explore and build theory on the links between youth poverty, social stability, and violence.
