Research
Jessica works at the intersection of international development and behavioral economics. One previous project examined cooperation between spouses in Kenya, while another studied the effect of cognitive taxation on patience in Ethiopian university students. She is currently working with maize farmers in Uganda to study how ambiguity aversion affects the decision to use herbicide that may have been counterfeited, and households in Senegal to look at how cooperation between spouses affects productivity in dairy farming.
