She managed and developed content for all of Prof. Stiglitz’s writings and presentations, working with a team of researchers and editors. This included the books Globalization and Its Discontents Revisited and The Euro; over 100 articles and op-eds for major media outlets; and some 70 academic papers in top journals.
