Sophie Boote

Sophie is an empirical microeconomist who graduated from the MSc in Economics for Development at QEH in 2018 and has now returned to the department to undertake research as part of the Technology and Management Centre for Development (TMCD). She works on digital technology, social trust, and inclusive development in China alongside the UNDP and the IDMODEL project in Bangladesh.

Concurrently, she is working on the CGIAR Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM) Research Program on Gender led by the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) under Dr Cheryl Doss. This project aligns closely with her own research which uses quantitative methods to research how remittances affect the labour supply of men and women, and agricultural productivity in rural Bangladesh.
