Research Topic Title

Creating Fiscal Capacity in Sub-Saharan Africa: How Effective Have the Reforms Been?

Research Summary

My research is focussed on the evaluation of recent tax reforms in Sub-Saharan Africa. Given my interdisciplinary background, I maintain primary research interests in the political and societal factors that impact the economic effectiveness of these reforms. My current work looks at the revenue impact of so-called semi-autonomous revenue authorities, as well as at elite legitimacy.
