My research interests are in Experimental Economics and Applied Microeconomics in the context of Development Economics. In particular, I study how to promote prosocial behavior.

My job market paper examines the role of a Conditional Cash Transfer (CCT) program in the ability to overcome coordination failures. I conducted and designed an artefactual field experiment and estimate a structural choice model of the individual decision to coordinate in a ‘Weak-link’ Coordination game, which highlights beliefs about others’ behavior as the main channel: high effort is only sustained under high beliefs. This result supports my coordination game as a reliable measure of the presence of a social norm.
