Biography

Alexander Amstrup

Alexander Amstrup

Danish and Filipino

Prior to joining the Blavatnik School, I worked as a Consultant at The Bridgespan Group, a social sector consultancy serving non-profits, philanthropic foundations and investors seeking to address pressing development issues. Based at the organisationÕs Mumbai office, my professional scope was broad, with projects ranging from enabling growth in IndiaÕs EdTech sector, to designing last-mile healthcare delivery mechanisms in remote tribal areas, to identifying effective field-level COVID-19 response efforts. Given this background, I am particularly interested in applying an equity lens to my MPP studies and exploring examples of effective social welfare policy.

Prior to joining Bridgespan, I spent several years working as a private sector consultant both in New York and Mumbai. I conducted my undergraduate studies at the University of Pennsylvania, where I obtained a BSc in Economics from the Wharton School and a BA in International Studies from the College of Arts and Sciences.
