Andrew Zeitlin

Principal Investigator, Rwanda

Andrew Zeitlin is an Associate Professor at the McCourt School of Public Policy at Georgetown University. He is also a non-resident fellow at the Center for Global Development and a Research Associate at the Centre for the Study of African Economies at Oxford University.

His research uses field and lab experimental methods to study how individual decision-making shapes state effectiveness, through the design of transfer programmes, incentives in public-service provision, and tax policy and administration. In recent and ongoing projects, he examines the recruitment effects of pay-for-performance in the public sector, the impacts of cash versus in-kind transfer programs, and the design of audit policies to reduce retail tax evasion in Rwanda.
