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.
Henry J. Heinz II Professor of Economics, Director of the Yale Economic Growth Center, Co-editor of American Economic Review: Insights
Pande’s research examines how formal and informal institutions shape power relationships and patterns of economic and political advantage in society, particularly in developing countries. In large-scale studies she has collaborated with researchers and governments to test new policies that make the state more accountable to its citizens: strengthening women’s economic and political opportunities, ensuring that environmental regulations reduce harmful emissions, and providing citizens effective means to voice their demand for state services.
