My current research agenda studies how the disruption caused by migration, forced displacement and conflict affects human behavior. I am leading several field experiments in Cabo Delgado, Mozambique, focusing on the socioeconomic integration of internally displaced persons and returning migrants amid the ongoing conflict affecting the region. My work is being supported by the International Growth Centre and the J-PAL Crime and Violence Initiative.
