FIelds of interest:

household economics and  economics of the family; rural households’ production choices, poverty and well-being. 


I work mainly in the sub-Saharan African context, where I collected several household surveys. In the first field of research, I study fertility choices, fostering and marital trajectories, as well as intra-household allocation of resources. In the second, I evaluate the introduction of a new agricultural technology (improved seeds) and its impact on production choices, nutrition and poverty.
