CEGA staff are dedicated to discovering and promoting effective solutions to the problems of poverty

Our professional staff work closely with faculty and partners to manage the center’s day-to-day work and increase the impact of CEGA-supported research and ideas. They develop research agendas around priority sectors and themes, oversee competitive grant-making processes, and connect research and ideas across portfolios. Our team also runs events, workshops, and communications and engagement efforts to ensure scientific evidence produced with CEGA support improves the lives of people living in poverty and the communities in which they reside.
