Welcome to my web page. I am a Young Professional at the World Bank in Washington DC, working on firm capabilities and innovation policies, in the Finance, Competitiveness and Innovation Global Practice.
My research focuses on cultural differences in how incentives are used in the workplace, using experimental methods. I am also involved in a research project on firms and entrepreneurship in Ghana, where I focus on firm failure and survival. I am affiliated to the the Centre for the Study of African Economies (CSAE) at the University of Oxford.
