Saika Belal is a PhD student in the department of Agricultural & Resource Economics (ARE) studying labor, behavioral and development economics. Her research focuses on whether preferences, beliefs and other behavioral parameters move over time and in response to scarcity, and whether these movements suggest a behavioral poverty trap. Her research involves conducting lab experiments, lab-in-the-field experiments, and behavioral sensing based on responses to mobile phone-based surveys and tasks.  She enjoys learning about the front line of methods of causal inference, and research & survey design.
