Before Yale, I had no idea what a PhD or research was, and am deeply grateful to the EGC Professors, Researchers, and Staff who welcomed me into the world of development economics. With their support, I’ve not only developed lifelong research and writing skills but a practical empirical framework for achieving economic justice for underserved communities around the world. – Diego Haro

I had heard that Diego had been doing excellent work as a Research Assistant for our group, so I jumped at the chance to have him on the Communications team. His work was excellent: he's a strong writer with great attention to detail. I'm excited to see what he does next. – Vestal McIntyre, Senior Staff Writer and Communications Specialist
