Development economist Pascaline Dupas is set to join Princeton as a professor of economics and public affairs in July 2023.
She will move to the institution from Stanford, where she has taught since 2011, most recently as the Kleinheinz Family Professor in International Studies and a professor in the unversity’s department of economics.
Her research focuses on understanding challenges facing poor households in low income countries, and on identifying tools and policies that can help reduce global poverty.
Prior to joining Stanford’s faculty, Dupas taught as an assistant professor at Dartmouth College and the University of California-Los Angeles. She was a Guggenheim Fellow in 2019 and elected as a fellow of the Econometric Society in 2018.
Dupas received a Ph.D. from the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales and a licence, a magistère and an M.S. from the École Normale Supérieure.
She will join development and health economist Seema Jayachandra at Princeton, who will also take up a professorship at the university this summer. Both economists are affiliated with the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab.
