A Selection of Projects with Primary Data Collection
I conduct a cluster-randomized trial to study the effectiveness of a large-scale effort to avert learning loss, and potential complementarities of home-based learning solutions with schools’ prior exposure to educational technology.
We conducted a cluster-randomized trial to study the effects of an innovative program in Karnataka, India, that promotes activity-based learning through teacher training, community engagement, and additional inputs.
This randomized trial investigates the long-term effects of a primary school scholarship program in rural Cambodia, nine years after program inception.
Using a computer-assisted learning software in India, we ran rapid-cycle randomized evaluations that shed light on the merits of intuitively appealing yet largely untested educational strategies.
This experimental study investigate the causal impact of a statewide program, which provides teachers with resources and training to blend their instruction with video-based learning materials.
We conduct 78 in-depth interviews with education personnel in Zambia’s public schools and combine thematic coding with unsupervised machine learning to explore determinants of changes in teachers’ instructional practices.
