I’m the Director of Poverty Measurement at Innovations for Poverty Action, which includes the PPI Initiative. The Poverty Measurement team develops and supports rigorous, cost-effective ways for researchers, businesses, and non-profits understand the economic lives of their clients.
Before that, I was Senior Research & Evaluation Manager at Kiva.org, focusing on how or when access to subsidized credit can help to alleviate poverty. Before that I finished the PhD in Agriculture & Resource Economics at UC Berkeley. My research has focused on various approaches to measuring individual and community welfare, and how that informs survey design and impact evaluation.
