Working with Evidence for Policy Design and the Center for Economic Research in Pakistan, Andrea explored the gender dynamics of vocational training programs in the high-poverty areas of rural Punjab.  She integrated baseline survey data collected as part of an independent assessment of the Punjab Economic Opportunities Program (PEOP) with existing literature and research to better understand how and why women choose to participate in skills-based training initiatives.  Her work has informed the design of future randomized control trials that examine the effects of vocational training on economic opportunities, with the ultimate aim of decreasing economic disparities in rural Punjab.
