Leadership and Staff

Under the direction of Professor Rohini Pande, EGC staff supports the research and communication needs of affiliates and enables an array of activities in teaching, outreach and broader engagement.


EGC faculty affiliates include scholars drawn from Yale’s Department of Economics, School of Management and Jackson Institute, working on a range of topics in international development, trade, and economic history.

Visiting Faculty

Throughout EGC’s history, we have welcomed scholars from external institutions to teach, participate in workshops and events, and immerse themselves in the EGC research community.

Research Associates & Fellows

EGC offers postdoctoral fellowships to recent PhDs working on projects in development economics. EGC also hosts a number of postgraduate associates who support research projects under the mentorship of EGC faculty, often leading to their acceptance into top graduate schools. The EGC also occasionally hires research consultants to support strategic initiatives.

Student Interns

EGC employs Yale undergraduates to assist in a wide range of research, data, and supporting tasks. Our Communications Interns help with events and write about development research and EGC’s history.

Alumni of the Internship & Fellowship programs

Many of our former Interns, Associates, and Fellows have gone on to top graduate programs, professional work in economics and international development, or careers in academia.
