Erin Kelley is an Economist in the Development Impact Evaluation (DIME) unit at the World Bank. In her research, Erin designs large-scale randomized experiments to study how technological innovations can be used to solve complex problems that affect households and firms in low-income countries. She has projects in Kenya, Bangladesh and India. The work in India investigates whether providing online skill assessments to job-applicants helps hiring managers identify candidates they may have traditionally overlooked. In Kenya, Erin's research examines how the use of GPS monitoring systems in mini-buses impacts business operations. Finally, her work in Bangladesh investigates the impact of providing work tasks to refugees on their psycho-social wellbeing.
