Research Fellow at the Blavatnik School of Government and Research Lead at the Mind & Behaviour Research Group


Kate Orkin is a Research Fellow at the Blavatnik School of Government. Her research interests are at the intersection of behavioural, labour and development economics, with projects in Kenya, Ethiopia, Uganda and South Africa. One strand of research examines how information interventions alter beliefs about oneself and expectations about the future, and, in turn, economic and political behaviour. Other work examines the economic, social and political effects of unconditional cash transfer programmes.
