Dr. Apedo-Amah is a postdoctoral fellow at Stanford University. She is currently working on the Transparency Accountability and Citizen Engagement (TRACE) Initiative for West-Africa at the Stanford Institute for Policy and Economic Research (SIEPR). She obtained her PhD from the Aix Marseille School of Economics (AMSE) in France. Her research focuses on Institutions and Development. She works on Non-Profit Organizations' behavior in development projects, and corruption in public goods provision. She also studied the efficiency of aid channels such as project aid and budget support. She is particularly interested in how the institutional environment affects public service delivery in developing countries. She recently conducted a lab-in-the-field experiment on the determinants of productive decision-making in agricultural households in rural Togo, and how they shape producers' response to agricultural projects.
