Angelino Viceisza Selected as a W. Glenn Campbell and Rita Ricardo-Campbell National Fellow and the John Stauffer National Fellow for the 2020-21 Academic Year

February 2020

Spelman Faculty Excellence Angelino ViceiszaDuring the 2020-21 academic year, Angelino Viceisza, Ph.D., Professor of Economics, will be visiting the Hoover Institution at Stanford University as a W. Glenn Campbell and Rita Ricardo-Campbell National Fellow and the John Stauffer National Fellow.

The Hoover Institution's Glenn Campbell and Rita Ricardo-Campbell National Fellows Program allows outstanding scholars from colleges, universities, and institutions around the world to be freed from academic and professional responsibilities to devote one year to unrestricted, creative research and publication. National Fellows Program fellowships provide scholars the opportunity to complete an original significant research project with the expectation of generating a publishable manuscript while in residence at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University, Stanford, California.

Dr. Viceisza's research examines the microeconomics of poverty and wealth creation, particularly in developing countries. He has written papers on (1) the determinants and impacts of entrepreneurship and innovation; (2) norms and preferences as potential drivers of poverty; (3) determinants of financial remittances; and (4) the impact of insurance on risky investment. This work has taken place in Ethiopia, Peru, Senegal, the United States, and Vietnam among others.
