I’m a development economist and a Research Fellow at the International Food Policy Institute (IFPRI). I’m based in Addis Ababa in Ethiopia where I work in the Ethiopia Strategy Support Program (ESSP) and IFPRI's Development Strategy and Governance (DSG) Division.
My current research focuses on nutrition and food security. This work is mostly based on the collection and statistical analysis of large household surveys. I'm also involved in evaluating large-scale development programs in Ethiopia, such as the Productive Safety Net Program (PSNP) and USAID’s Feed the Future (FtF) initiative.
