Dr. Gottlieb's research focuses on the political economy of development and, in particular, constraints to government accountability in new democracies. Her work falls into three themes: information asymmetries and voter coordination, informal institutions and clientelism, and the political implications of unequal gender norms. Much of her research has been in sub-Saharan Africa, where she has conducted field experiments, behavioral games, and surveys.
