034_anja_tolonen_1061My research interests are focused on topics within development economics. In particular, one strand of my research explores how natural resource booms affect local welfare, with a specific focus labor markets, criminal behavior, health and gender equality. Another strand of my research focuses on economics of gender and the household, exploring transmission of information within the household, fatherhood, intimate partner violence, and access to sanitation for adolescent girls. I use empirical methods including quasi-experiments, lab experiments in the field and randomized control trials.

At Barnard College, I teach Development Economics, Econometrics and a senior seminar on Gender and Development Economics.
