Day of an Assistant Professor (36)

1. Write and submit a referee report.

2. Learn a bit about HIV and email comments to my fellow development economists in Japan on their project on HIV prevention in Africa.

3. A colleague with whom I'm working on the climate change project visits my office and lets me know what he learns from the medical literature about how malaria infection during pregnancy (which will be affected by climate change!) increases child mortality. This gives us an idea of the empirical specification.
