Dr Edoardo Masset
Deputy Director of CEDIL
36 Gordon Square
I am the Deputy Director of the Centre of Excellence in Development Impact and Learning (CEDIL), a consortium established with the goal of developing and testing innovative methods for evaluation and evidence synthesis. Before joining CEDIL I was Deputy Director and head of the London office of the International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie), which I joined after working for seven years as a Research Fellow at the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex. I am an agricultural and development economist by training and I have been conducting impact evaluations of development interventions since joining the World Bank as a consultant in 2002.
I am an agriculture and development economist by training and my main research interests include:
- The design of experimental and quasi-experimental evaluations of development interventions
- The statistical/econometric analysis of health, education and other welfare outcomes through household survey data
- The analysis of poverty and inequality, food policy, agriculture and nutrition
I am currently leading the DFID-funded CEDIL project, whose aim is developing and promoting new impact evaluations methods in challenging contexts of international development, such as complex interventions, governance, and fragile states. Within this programme I am contributing to the development and the application of new impact evaluation methods through theoretical work and applied field research.
