I am an Assistant Professor at the University of Chicago, Harris School of Public Policy.

I am a research fellow at IGC, JPAL-CVI, NBER (PE), a distinguished fellow at CESifo, and was a CIFAR Azrieli Global Scholar and a scholar at the Harvard Academy for International and Area Studies.

In 2015, after 5 years of work, I co-founded Marakuja Kivu Research, a data collection organization in D.R. Congo. I am now its Scientific Director.

My work is mostly in DR Congo, and was part of a documentary, Congo Calling.
