Goma, DRC (2019)

.My research covers a broad range of topics related to development. I have experience with quantitative and qualitative research. I find particularly interesting the use of interdisciplinary methods that facilitate the comprehension of phenomena in environments where data is scarce.

Since 2017, I have conducted fieldwork in different regions of the DRC, on issues related to governance, public good provision, and decentralization.

I have also conducted fieldwork in Guatemala to investigate issues linked to deforestation, land tenure, and migration.

I visited Côte d’Ivoire in 2022 to learn more about the links between deforestation, conflict, and the legacies of conflict.

These experiences have been key to my improve my understanding on the political economic of development and conflict. More importantly, they have allowed me to meet fantastic collaborators and coauthors, and build strong and lasting friendships.
