Andrew's research uses theory-driven field and laboratory experimental methods, together with the collection of observational data, to study the microeconomic mechanisms of economic development. This research focuses 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 behavior.
Recent projects have applied these tools 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.
