I’m happy to share that I will be joining NYU for a post-doc with the Development Research Institute there. I feel very lucky to have the opportunity to interact with such a fantastic group of people and will hopefully have the chance to focus a bit more on research and pushing papers out the door.
This is the institute associated with Bill Easterly and Aid Watch, but it’s entirely independent of my work with AidGrade and you shouldn’t jump to any conclusions. They haven’t been focusing on aid recently, and neither they nor I thinks traditional aid is a large part of the picture; I have always used a broad definition of aid. I’m excited about the opportunity and anticipate some great conversations. Let me know if you’re in the city!
