Another Introduction

I’m Tristan Reed, and I’m honored to join Megan’s crack team of guest bloggers for the week. I agree with Peter that introductions are akward, so I'll just give you my paragraph long CV, and hope that convinces you to read me.

I’m an entering economics Ph.D. student at Harvard, with research interests in development and behavioral economics as well as political economy. I’m taking next year off to work for the Jameel Poverty Action Lab in Sierra Leone, working with NGOs and international institutions to evaluate their development programs and find out which ones work, and for whom.

In my posts this week, I'll try to bring you the latest in economics and political science research, and to spark some discussion about what it all means.
