The DBS Branch is proud to recognize its grantee, Dr. Esther Duflo , who received the 2010 John Bates Clark Medal as the most promising U.S. economist younger than age 40 for her Branch-supported work in Development Economics. Her Women Empowerment and Child Health in Developing Countries grant, supported by the Branch since 2001, and other projects address issues of politics, gender, and education in developing countries.
Dr. Duflo is only the second woman to win the Clark Medal, which is often called the "Baby Nobel" because those who win the Clark often go on to win the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, also known as the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences. She also received a MacArthur Foundation Fellowship, or "genius" award, for her work in 2009.
The DBS Branch congratulates Dr. Duflo on her well-deserved recognition.
The DBS Branch is please to recognize a number of its grantees who were elected into the National Academy of Sciences.
