My research broadly concerns with demography in sub-Saharan Africa, inequality induced by the change in demographic composition and its consequences on people’s life trajectories. My current research explores the trend and magnitude in educational inequality in light of the Education for All (EFA) movement. Aside from educational outcome, I am very much interested in the burden of disease - the latent effect of HIV/AIDS epidemics and other health issues such as malnutrition on labor productivity, family formation, and strategies for social mobility.
