My research mainly focuses on poverty alleviation and demographic change in the developing world. I am particularly interested in the evaluation of development policies using a mix of quantitative and qualitative methods. My recent papers explore the effects of maternal and child health programs on the well-being of families in Bangladesh and the impact of self-help group participation on the lives of women in rural Rajasthan (India). I am also interested in patterns of marriage and household structure across the developing world.
