Alum, Research Fellow Goes to World Bank
UF law alumnus and Senior Research Fellow Craig Hammer— a recent graduate who co-authored a number of papers with Professor Winston Nagan — has been hired as a Junior Associate at the World Bank.
Hammer will work with the Program to Develop New Bank Practices in Civic Engagement, Empowerment and Respect for Diversity, which manages a number of the organization’s experimental projects. He received the call from the World Bank last Monday, Sept. 19, and reported for work two days later. While the pace of the hiring was swift, Nagan said, it did not come as a complete surprise: Hammer had worked as a consultant for the organization over recent months.
“Craig does bang-up research, and once they got the chance to work with him, I think the people at the World Bank recognized his talent,” Nagan said.
