My PhD is on applied micro-econometrics. I wrote three papers using fuzzy regression discontinuity designs. Two of them are on UK topics. In one, which is currently being reviewed by the B.E. journal of economic analysis and policy, I have evaluated the education maintenance allowance on the stay on in education in England, using the data from the Longitudinal Survey of Young People in England. I have examined the retirement-consumption puzzle in the UK, in the other PhD paper on UK topic, which is currently being revised in a high standard for journal submission, using data from the Family Expenditure Survey, Expenditure and Food Survey, and Living Cost and Food Survey. In all of my PhD papers, I am the leading author or a single author. Another PhD paper, analyzing the effects of social safety net programs in Bangladesh on calorie consumption and labour productivity, was published in Journal of Development Studies.
In my recent job, I have worked with health sciences people in the school of health sciences and social work at the University of Portsmouth. There I have evaluated two demand-side financing programs on maternal and child health care outcomes using mainly propensity score matching, regression discontinuity design (RDD), diff-in-diff, and instrumental variables regressions. I have produced six papers. One of them (where I am the principal author) was published in Economics & Human Biology journal. This article intensively used quasi-experimental evaluation methods, such as propensity score matching, and fuzzy RDD. The use of fuzzy RDD was highly innovative. This article has attracted a vast research community. Within three months, 225 people read the article, and because of this, I have received requests from around 30 health-related journals to submit a paper in their journals. From this job, one more paper, in which I have examined the effects of shorter postnatal hospital stay on post-discharge complications using instrumental variables regressions, was published in the Journal of International Development. This is another high-quality quantitative paper where I am the leading author. This month, I have finished the top paper from the job. For the research paper, I have designed a survey. As I prepared the survey questionnaire, I added an instrument, whether the households have connections with the selection committee (as in developing countries, such political or other connections often manipulate the selection criteria), which has made the paper very high. By establishing a theoretical model, I have also made an innovative link with the program and Tanahashi framework (on service bottlenecks), which was the central theme of the project, funded by the Medical Research Council, UK. After finishing proof editing, I will submit the paper in the Journal of Health Economics soon.
I look forward to hearing from you.
