I am a development economist whose research interests span issues in health and public economics. I am particularly interested in two areas. First, responses of local governments and communities on mitigating unintended consequences of a large-scale policy. In this area, I study the impacts of and responses to rice import restriction in Indonesia. I find evidence that local governments directed more public goods and development projects to adversely affected villages, and these actions are plausibly not motivated by political reasons. In another area, I focus on the interrelationship between incentives, institution, and health. My recent paper in this area evaluates the selection and behavioral responses of randomly provided health insurance subsidies in Ghana.
