James Walsh

DPhil in Public Policy Student (2017)

I am a Research Analyst in the World Bank’s behavioral science unit (eMBeD) where I lead behavioral projects related to job search and clean water in Ethiopia and Niger, respectively. Before joining the eMBeD team, I was a member of the research team for the World Development Report 2015: Mind, Society, and Behavior. In 2015, I served on the faculty of the Georgetown School of Foreign Service and lectured in behavioral approaches to development economics. Prior to joining the Bank, I was a research assistant to Robert Putnam, I spent time at the Gross National Happiness Commission of the Royal Government of Bhutan, and worked with Michael D. Higgins, President of Ireland, on multidisciplinary approaches to policymaking. I have a BA in Economics and Political Science from Trinity College Dublin and a Master in Public Policy from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard.
