Her research investigates the origins, drivers and effects of inequality of access to public services (particularly infrastructure, education and measures of public health). Some current work includes studying the persistent effects of historical institutions and geography on access to public services in Nigeria. Other research studies the impact of health shocks on the gender gap in human capital investment, and the effects of environmental regulation on pollution levels and associated health. She is a faculty affiliate at Columbia University's Center for Development Economics and Policy (CDEP) and The Earth Institute at Columbia University.
