Hello! I am Wahed. Welcome to my website. Here is a link to my CV. 

I am an applied microeconomist with a broad interest in development and labor economics. I focus on the empirical microeconomic analysis of development policies, social welfare analysis, and causal inference.  My current research explores human capital and productivity – often having the role of information, norms, and technology as a cross-cutting theme.

If you are referring me on the 'first-name-basis', please call me "Wahed". If you need to use my full name, please use "Khandker Wahedur Rahman". 

I am senior postdoctoral researcher for the Oxford Martin Program on the Future of Development at the University of Oxford, where I am an associate member of the Department of Economics as well. I am affiliated with the BRAC Institute of Governance and Development (BIGD), BRAC University as a visiting senior research fellow. 

I have completed my Ph.D. from the Department of Applied Economics at the University of Minnesota. I also hold an MPP from the Humphrey School of Public Affairs. I have previously worked for the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI), International Finance Corporation (IFC), and Swisscontact Bangladesh in various capacities.
