Manuel collaborates with governments across low- and middle-income countries to explore how to improve the delivery of public services. 

By utilising randomised trials, administrative data, and machine learning, his ongoing research evaluates how to improve the functioning of justice systems, leveraging underutilised data systems to transform the ways we examine questions of fairness and legitimacy.
