Affiliated Professors

Our affiliates are professors at 91 universities who conduct randomized evaluations around the world to design, evaluate, and improve programs and policies aimed at reducing poverty, and publish the results of these evaluations in high-quality economics journals. They set their own research agendas, raise funds to support their evaluations, and work with J-PAL staff on research, policy outreach, and training.
