Javier E. Baez
I am a Senior Economist with the Poverty Global Practice at the World Bank working for the East Africa region. I am also a Research Fellow at the Institute for the Study of Labor (IZA). My research focuses on the effects of shocks, either natural (hurricanes, floods earthquakes) or man-made (civil conflicts) on socioeconomic outcomes such as infant mortality, nutrition, morbidity and child labor as well as their long-term impacts on health and human capital accumulation, and labor market outcomes. Other work examines the long-term effects of conditional cash transfers programs. I obtained a PhD in Economics from the Maxwell School of Public Affairs at Syracuse University (Syracuse, NY), a Masters degree in Public Administration and Development Economics from the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University (Cambridge, MA) and B.A. and M.A. degrees in economics from Universidad de los Andes (Bogota, Colombia).
