Way to go, Elizabeth!

When I mentioned today in class (doesn't B4 suck?) Esther Duflo and the Poverty Lab, Constantinos L. got excited: 'Oooops, I know that! My sister works there'!
Elizabeth Linos
B.A. in Government and Economics, Harvard University

Research Assistant, Paris
Elizabeth holds a Bachelors Degree in Government and Economics from Harvard University. Before joining J-PAL, Elizabeth worked in Boston on health care provision to immigrants, in Peru, conducting field research on the quality of teachers and in Honduras, studying a government social transfer for poor households. She joined J-PAL in 2007, as a field-based research assistant in Bangladesh where she worked on a female empowerment project. She is currently working on evaluations of microfinance in Morocco, student sponsoring in France, and an ultra poor program in Pakistan.
Way to go Elizabeth! I hope her work inspires some of you to work on such issues later on in your career!
