PhD Supervision

I supervise several PhD students and recruit 1 or 2 more each year. My students need to be very bright, well-organised and commited to creating useful knowledge.

At present I am especially keen to supervise students with interests in state effectiveness and improving governance; social protection; the analysis of ultra-poverty and policies to tackle ultra poverty; and, disability in low income countries.
