Caitlin Tulloch is a Technical Advisor at the International Rescue Committee, where she analyzes the efficiency of social programs in areas affected by conflict or extreme poverty. Prior to this, she interned in the Public Financial Management Unit of the World Bank in Indonesia, and spent four years as a Policy Analyst at the Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) at MIT. At J-PAL she synthesized research results into actionable lessons for policymakers in foundations, aid agencies, and governments. Her work has included long-term policy engagements with the ministries of education of Ghana and the Dominican Republic, among others. During her time at J-PAL, Caitlin also developed a standard process for evaluating the cost-effectiveness of development interventions, published several papers on the topic, and trained staff on the use of cost analysis at organizations including USAID, DFID, and the International Rescue Committee (IRC). She holds a BA in Economics from the University of Chicago, and an MPA in Economics and Public Policy from the Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University.

While at Princeton, Caitlin and Mitra Trustee Shannon Hiller participated in a graduate policy workshop on peace-keeping and development, serving as consultants to the Army War College’s Peace-Keeping and Stability Operations Initiative (PKSOI).  Led by Professor Ethan Kapstein and Professor Jacob Shapiro, they conducted interviews with representatives from the militaries of the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Philippines, as well as government and non-government organizations in four countries. The research sought to understand and highlight the experiences of these organizations and individuals during recent stabilization operations, particularly in Afghanistan, Iraq, the Philippines, and Somalia. The workshop developed conclusions and recommendations published in “Lessons for US Doctrine: Challenges in Stabilization Operations.”
