Biography

Paul Clist is a Lecturer in Development Economics in the School of International Development, UEA. Previously, he completed his PhD at the University of Nottingham (2007-10) and was an ESRC postdoctoral fellow at UEA (2011-13). His main area of research uses applied econometric analysis to examine development aid. He has published on aid allocation, the effect of international aid on domestic tax, and rankings of donor performance. He has also conducted consultancy and impact evaluation work on the topic of Results Based Aid, a form of Payment by Results, for DFID UK and DFID Rwanda. 

His second area of research applies Behavioural and Experimental Economics to important open questions in development economics. Typically, the research is motivated by a recognition that the social context in which a decision is made is both important and understudied.
