What is the most interesting project you have worked on at J-PAL? I planned a large matchmaking and evidence dissemination event in Accra, Ghana with J-PAL Global and J-PAL Africa staff, which was an excellent opportunity to strengthen my relationship with other J-PAL offices, learn how to effectively coordinate and communicate with international partners, and advance my knowledge of J-PAL’s evidence outside the North America region.
What drew you to want to work at J-PAL? I was excited by J-PAL’s mission and how truly enthusiastic and hard-working all J-PAL staff are to help reduce poverty. I was also very motivated by J-PAL’s emphasis on not only spurring new research, but making sure that research was being used to concretely influence policy and decision-making that helps people living in poverty.
