Muhammad Adil Ahsan  : "Violence, Age of Exposure, and the Nepalese Civil War:  Understanding the Effects of Violence Exposure on the Educational Outcomes of Children." (Advisor : Prof. Edmonds)

While there is extensive research on the effects of exposure to violence in utero on later-life outcomes, relatively little has been done to investigate the differential effects of exposure to violence based on age at the time of exposure. Moreover, almost no work has been done to investigate the effect that violence along a road network has on disrupting trade and economic activity. Thus, my thesis seeks to fill these gaps in the literature by examining the case of the Nepalese Civil War.
