Gaurav Datt

I have been an Associate Professor in the Department of Economics and the Deputy Director of the Centre for Development Economics and Sustainability at Monash University, Melbourne, Australia since 2011.

I have earlier worked in both research and operational positions at the World Bank (1990-1996 and 1999-2011) and at the International Food Policy Research Institute in Washington D.C. (1996-1999).

My research focuses on poverty, income distribution, education, labour and social policy issues in a number of countries in Asia, the Pacific and Africa, and I have recently been working with teams from the World Bank and statistical authorities in Myanmar and the Philippines to develop the first multidimensional measures of poverty for those nations.
