I study organizations and how organizational practices affect firm and labour outcomes across countries and industries. My work spans the private sector (with a focus on manufacturing firms, family firms and multinationals) as well as the public sector (with a focus on schools, principals and teachers). The type of firm outcomes I study include productivity and profitability (including profit shifting), and the type of labour outcomes I think about include labour sorting and selection, inequality (of wage and opportunity) and mental health. I am affiliated with the CEPR and the Productivity Partnership and I am a Research Fellow at the London School of Economics with the Centre for Economic Performance. I am a faculty fellow at the Cornell Smith Family Business Initiative and an invited researcher at JPAL LAC and JPAL North America. I work on two large data collection initiatives: the World Management Survey and the Development WMS.
