Om Yonas Alem

I am an economist applying microeconomics and econometrics to research on a range of topics related to poverty, economic development, and the environment in developing regions of the world, with a particular focus on Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.

In my previous work, I applied panel data econometrics to measure the impact of shocks on household welfare, poverty dynamics and technology adoption in Africa.

In collaboration with a number of colleagues and graduate students, I’m continuing my research on technology adoption, the impact of uninsured risk and shocks on household outcomes, as well as, the dynamics of well-being, and household energy choice.

I currently work as Research Director for the (EfD) Environment for Development initiative. The EfD has succeeded in creating a network that provides research and academic capacity building in seven developing and emerging countries (Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, South Africa, China, Costa Rica and Chile) in collaboration with researchers based in more than ten Universities and research institutions around the world. As the EfD research director, I’m in charge of administering the EfD research fund, evaluating research proposals and papers, and co-editing the EfD Discussion Paper series together with Professor Peter Berck of the University of California Berkeley.
