Staff Profile: Hannah Myers


What do you do at J-PAL? As a Communications Associate, I work to ensure our research reaches people who can act on it. I identify decision makers–from those who create policy to those who are affected by it—and connect them with research to inform their choices.

What drew you to want to work at J-PAL? I am inspired by J-PAL’s commitment to translate research into action. J-PAL asks tough questions and answers them meticulously, supporting those who have to make hard choices about the best way to tackle poverty.

What is your favorite place in the world that you have been? Corcovado National Park in Costa Rica.

If you had to eat only one food for the rest of your life, what would it be? Burritos.

If you could have dinner with one person, dead or alive, who would it be? Diana Nyad.

J-PAL North America seeks to reduce poverty by ensuring that policy is informed by scientific evidence. We do this through research, outreach, and training. We collaborate with decision-makers to generate clear, scientific evidence on which approaches work and why. We catalyze and support randomized evaluations, communicate evidence to help translate research into action, and build policymakers’ capacity to create and use evidence.
