The main activities of this research relate to improving adoption of fuel-efficient cookstoves and behavior change, particularly transitioning households from primarily utilizing their threestone fire to usage of the fuel-efficient cookstove(s) for cooking.

Three randomized controlled trials tested: (1) What marketing messages are effective at increasing willingness to pay for a more efficient stove in rural Uganda; (2) What sales offers (e.g., free trial and time payments) increases willingness to pay and uptake; (3) What effects does ownership of an efficient stove have on the use of old and new stoves, fuel use, and indoor air pollution from kitchen level concentrations of particulate matter.
