Andrew Zeitlin is an Assistant Professor at the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University. His research uses theory-driven field and laboratory experimental methods, together with the collection of observational data, to study the microeconomic mechanisms of economic development. The focus of this research has been on two broad themes, with applications both within and outside of development economics: individual decision-making under conditions of uncertainty, and the interplay between social preferences and external incentives in workplace behaviour. Andrew's recent projects have applied these themes to questions of immediate policy relevance to economic development in Africa, including agricultural technology adoption in Ghana, health insurance in Kenya, public service delivery in Uganda, and property rights in urban Tanzania.
