It is with great excitement that we announce that Arun Advani, Assistant Professor here at the University of Warwick, will be speaking at WES 2018.
Dr. Advani’s career comprises positions as Deputy Director and Research Associate at CAGE and Research Fellow at CRETA as well as at the Institute for Fiscal Studies. Dr. Advani’s research primarily revolves around the topical fields of development economics and public policy, where his innovative approach greatly contributes to the understanding of issues in development economics. His recently published study `Insurance Networks and Endogenous Poverty Traps' provides a novel explanation for the lack of profitable investments in poor households. Featured on the World Bank Development Impact Blog and as the top story in the Weekly Newsletter from the Financial Access Initiative, the paper highlights the ways to improve the cost-effectiveness of the capital transfer programs.
As a Research Fellow at the IFS, Dr. Advani also co-authored a numerous policy reports and comments on environmental taxation in the UK, as well as worked on issues of environmental economics.
