Ph.D. Harvard University
Kelsey Jack received her Ph.D. in Public Policy from Harvard
University in 2010, followed by a post-doctoral appointment at MIT
with the Jameel Poverty Action Lab and the Agricultural Technology
Adoption Initiative. She joined the Tufts faculty in 2011. Her
research focuses on the intersection of environmental and
development economics and investigates questions from behavioral
economics and contract theory. Current research projects study the
design of incentives for the private provision of public goods, and
are applied to issues of environment and health in Malawi, Zambia
and Bolivia. Her research uses field experiments and lab experiments
implemented in the field to evaluate interventions and test theory.
Prior to graduate school, Kelsey lived in Laos for two years, where
she worked for a conservation NGO.
