Predoctoral Trainee in Economics
Tsuda currently works on two sequences of research, both in the context of Sub-Saharan Africa. First, he attempts to uncover the geography of widespread subsistence behavior and the process of agricultural development, focusing on the structure of output and factor market frictions. Second, he studies conflicts involving violent extremist organizations, both from contemporary and historical perspectives. He also investigates the process of building ethnic coexistence and market opportunities for high-risk populations.
