Prior to joining the department, Anett was an Assistant Professor at CREST and ENSAE Paris. Her research applies behavioural models to topics in development economics, such as microfinance, human capital, and health. She is particularly interested in behavioural barriers to economic investment decisions. A strong past focus has been the impact of time preferences and self-control on individuals' lives. More recently, she is studying the importance of individuals' beliefs about themselves (captured in psychological concepts like agency and self-efficacy) for economic decisionmaking. Applications extend beyond developing countries to disadvantaged populations in high-income countries, such as unemployed youths in France. Her methodology of choice are randomized field experiments that are firmly grounded in economic theory.
