Biographical Information

John Hoddinott is a Deputy Director in the Poverty Health and Nutrition Division. Before joining IFPRI he held university appointments in Canada and the United Kingdom, including a University Lectureship in Economics and Fellowship at Lady Margaret Hall, University of Oxford. A Canadian citizen, Hoddinott holds a B.A. in economics from the University of Toronto, an M.A. from York University and a D.Phil. in Economics from the University of Oxford.

His principal research interest lies in the microeconometric analysis of issues in development economics. John is especially interested in the causes of poverty, food insecurity and undernutrition, and the design and evaluation of interventions that would reduce these. Much of his current research has focused on the determinants and consequences of human capital formation. This builds on his earlier work on modeling the processes of intra-household resource allocation and on labor markets. John has also had involvement in discussions surrounding aid flows, responses to the 2008 food price crisis and reforms to the global food security architecture such as the Food Aid Convention.

John Hoddinott currently leads a five country study evaluating the impact of food, cash and voucher transfers being conducted for the World Food Program, the evaluation of Ethiopia’s Food Security Programme and is part of a team evaluating South Africa’s Child Support Grant. He was the leader of the recent evaluation of Brazil’s Bolsa Familia cash transfer program and participated in the impact evaluation of PROGRESA. John has been heavily involved in primary data collection through living in a mud hut in western Kenya and a small town near Timbucktu Mali, as well as developing longitudinal and cross-sectional household and community surveys in Cote d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Kenya, Mali, Namibia and Zimbabwe.
