What do you do at J-PAL? I provide support for the policy team, I help with the creation of research resources by the research team, and I help manage social media for J-PAL North America. I do a little bit of everything, and in my first week here, have already gotten a taste of research relating to substance abuse, Moving to Opportunity, technology, and the transition to college.
What drew you to want to work at J-PAL? I’m interested in the practical implications of high quality research, and I like that J-PAL works to pair highly robust research methods with concrete applications to policy.
What is your favorite place in the world that you have been?
Denali National Park, Alaska
If you had to eat only one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Poppy bagels (lightly toasted) with (scallion) cream cheese and lox. Preferably from Absolute Bagels on Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
