Abbie Turiansky Accepts New Position at Mathematica

June 20, 2016

Abbie Turiansky will join Mathematica's Center for International Policy Research and Evaluation as a researcher in their Oakland office. Abbie is a development economist whose research uses behavioral and experimental economics to explore the social behavior related to the provision and management of public goods, particularly in the context of agricultural development. In her dissertation, Abbie uses lab-in-the-field experiments to examine how farmers may be encouraged to behave in a more socially optimal manner when faced with a classic collective action dilemma to provide a public good, and how those farmers respond to a new agricultural technology that is highly dependent on the public good. Her dissertation committee members are Travis Lybbert, Michael Carter, and Katrina Jessoe.
