I am a development economist, currently employed by the Global Development Institute of the University of Manchester.
Since my graduation from the Catholic University of Leuven with a PhD in Economics, I have worked in a number of countries,
including France, Germany and the US. Prior to that I lived and worked for two years in India. As part of a three year project,
sponsored by the British Academy, I have developed an academic network with four countries in Francophone West Africa. The
project resulted in several subsequent research programmes. Much of my on-going research focuses on food security, labour
markets in developing countries and intergenerational transfers. I am particularly interested in behavioural field experiments.
My film on food security and related issues in Ivory Coast, based on my on-going
research on West Africa.
