Sandip Sukhtankar (Economics), Isaac Mbiti (Batten), Gabrielle Kruks-Wisner (Politics) Over the past fifteen years, a new wave of empirical research in the field of global development has emerged that aims to examine the most pressing challenges facing individuals, households, and firms in developing countries using advanced quantitative techniques. Researchers from the social science fields of economics, politics, and public policy are all closely involved, with interdisciplinary research common. We propose a new speaker series that will bring innovative and current quantitative research in global development to grounds. The series would provide a venue for faculty and students to interact and discuss cutting-edge empirical work in global development.
