Georgette joined Columbia World Projects in August 2019 as a Post-doctoral Research Scientist. She holds a doctoral degree in Agricultural Economics from the University of Kentucky. Georgette’s research interest is primarily in Development and Health Economics. Her doctoral research examined constraints that have hindered the ‘buy-local’ policy mandate of the Ghana School Lunch program, and explored gendered agricultural technology adoption and contract participation strategies that could facilitate the policy mandate. Georgette’s current research with Dr.’s Darby and Kelsey Jack examines viable clean energy sources, household adoption and use decisions, and the health impacts of cleaner fuels in Ghana, with interventions to support community-level adoption and sustained use of clean household energy technologies.
