People

We believe that rigorous research is a powerful means to an end to poverty. Our research is conducted by Notre Dame faculty and an interdisciplinary network of scholars from across the country, and is supported by a team of research, project development, and administrative professionals and undergraduate interns. We have in common a deep belief in human dignity and a commitment to excellence in our research methods.
