Methodologically, he designs randomized experiments and searches for natural experiments to answer causal questions relevant to his research. Heavily focusing his research in Southeast Asia, particularly the Philippines, Ravanilla also broadly applies the theoretical insights and policy lessons of his research to other countries in the developing world. Ravanilla recently completed a postdoctoral fellowship at the Shorenstein Asia-Pacific Research Center at Stanford University.
