We have recently started a brand new “Researcher Spotlight Series”, which will feature our past and current researchers; men and women who work behind the scenes to produce top-notch tax and development research in ICTD’s key thematic areas.

Starting us off this series, is Dr. Merima Ali, an ICTD researcher with research interests on private sector development and taxation; as well as other development issues like health. She is also a Senior Researcher at the Christian Michelsen Institute (CMI) and a Research Assistant Professor at Syracuse University. See her full profile here.

Ali has published a number of papers for the ICTD, including: “Information Technology and Fiscal Capacity in a Developing Country: Evidence from Ethiopia”, “People’s Views of Taxation in Africa” and is currently working on a related research project about the effect of Electronic Sales Register Machines on tax enforcement and tax outcomes.
