Professor Doss” research interests center around household decision-making in rural households, especially in Africa. In particular, she is interested in how social and economic changes affect the dynamics of decision-making within households. Much of Professor Doss” current work focuses on issues around women”s access to assets, including land. This includes developing methodologies for collecting individual level asset data and empirical work analyzing how women acquire assets, which assets they own and control, and how this affects their well-being. We talk with her about land ownership and land tenure reform as it affects women in Africa.
