Biography

Philippe joined Heriot-Watt in September 2007. His field of specialization is Development Economics. His research encompasses a broad range of topics: intra-household consumption allocation decisions, informal institutions such as saving and insurance groups (Benin) and discussion groups (Grin in Mali), formal health micro-insurance (‘mutuelles’ in Senegal) and witchcraft (magico-religious powers). His work draws on several original datasets that he collected in Benin, Senegal and Mali. LeMay-Boucher is member of the Canadian Development Economics Study Group and of the Development Studies Association UK.
