Arman Rezaee

Assistant Professor of Economics, University of California, Davis

Arman Rezaee is an Assistant Professor of Economics at the University of California, Davis. Much of Arman’s research focuses on the role that information communication technology (ICT) can play in improving public service delivery, and livelihoods more broadly, in developing contexts. Arman works with partners across the globe to develop, implement, and test new technologies leveraging ICT to these ends. Such technologies include a first-of-its-kind smartphone monitoring platform for health inspectors in Pakistan, a information clearinghouse to rate government veterinarians in Pakistan, low-cost cellular towers bringing first time access to remote communities in the Philippines, SMS day-ahead air pollution forecasts in Lahore, and most recently a voice-based social network designed to provide maternal and child health information to rural, low-literate expectant fathers in Pakistan. Prior to receiving his PhD in economics from the UC San Diego, Arman received a Master in Public Policy from the John F. Kennedy School of Government.
