Martin Mattsson

Visiting Scholar

Martin is a Ph.D. candidate in Economics at Yale University and is visiting Brown for the 2019/2020 academic year. His research focuses on how formal and informal institutions shape socio-economic outcomes. He has two ongoing field experiments in Bangladesh, one studying how performance scorecards can change the behavior of government bureaucrats and another about the effects of Village Courts. He also studies the effects of the #MeToo movement in different countries across the world. Martin enjoys running and is looking forward to exploring Providence's parks, playgrounds and museums together with his toddler.
