London - Nava Ashraf appointed Research Director of LSE's Marshall Institute for Philanthropy and Social Entrepreneurship

Nava-AshrafWarmest Congratulations to fellow ebbf member Nava Ashraf who moves from Harvard to LSE in London.
In her words “Thrilled to formally announce today a very big move: to be a professor in one of my favourite departments in the world, with colleagues I admire to no end (the Economics department at the LSE); to help spur research at an Institute whose founders have utterly inspired me with their vision; and to build a home of joy and service in the amazing, vibrant, beautiful city of London.”

The Marshall Institute is focused on the transformative impact of private philanthropic action and upon being appointed as Research Director there and professor of economics at LSE Nava stated “We live in a time where there is a tremendous desire to do good – but relatively little that disciplines that instinct or helps us learn how to maximise its positive impact on society. I am deeply excited to work together with the Marshall Institute and my extraordinary new colleagues across LSE to launch frontier scientific research with impact in this vital field.”
