Tiffany Simon is a PhD student in comparative politics at Princeton. Her research interests sit at the intersection of political behavior, economic and political development and governance. On LEAPS, Tiffany is working with Asim Khwaja (Harvard Kennedy School) and Saher Asad (Lahore University of Management Sciences) on a field experiment examining how rural citizens, particularly women, can improve government school performance by holding policy actors accountable for public service delivery outside of election cycles. Her other research projects examine political behavior in the Gulf and the relationship between poverty and identity salience. Before Tiffany started her PhD, she was a senior research manager at Evidence for Policy Design at the Harvard Kennedy School, completed her MPA at Columbia's School of International and Public Affairs, and worked at the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development in Geneva.
