I have been working in and teaching on Latin American economic development issues since the early 1980s. My research interests are refreshed regularly by my field experiences and those of my students. I explore how global and local factors, such as migration, trade, technology, and education, shape poverty, development, and sustainability outcomes. I also am interested in how experimental economics can help us better understand behavior and guide effective program and policy design.
