Stephanie Gimenez Stahlberg


I am an Associate Researcher at Stanford University's Poverty | Violence | Governance Lab and a consultant. I have consulted for the World Bank, USAID, and Social Impact.

My work focuses on the dynamics of crime and violence in Latin America and the Caribbean, and on evaluating the impact of programs and policies that tackle poverty, inequality, and violence prevention. I employ mixed research methods, including surveys, experiments, statistical analysis and econometrics, interviews, and focus groups.

I am originally from São Paulo, Brazil, and graduated from the University of Massachusetts - Amherst with a B.A. in Economics and Political Science, from Stanford University with an M.A. in International Policy Studies, and from Johns Hopkins University with a Ph.D. in International Relations.
