   A few of my recent outputs are listed below. This Blavatnik School page also tracks School-branded working papers, as well as some of my blogs, more prominent talks, media interviews, grey literature contributions, and so on.

   I update the below list periodically, adding full names (before the "et al") for single or joint first authors. A more complete list of my academic publications can be found on Google Scholar. I also act as a reviewer for journals such as APSR, EPSR, PNAS, Nature Medicine, Nature Communications, BMJ Global Health, Socio Economic Review, and Science Advances.
