Hardy said he was excited by the prospect of working with Brookings scholars to pursue such mutual research interests as poverty, social policy, economic instability, and intergenerational mobility. During his fellowship, he will briefly be on leave from his position as assistant professor of public administration and policy.
“It’s an honor to be a Brookings fellow,” said Hardy. “I’m looking forward to working with such a talented group of economic scholars on issues that really matter to the American people.”
The Okun-Model Fellowship provides recipients with the opportunity to establish collegial relationships with Brookings scholars and to participate in workshops and conferences sponsored by the think tank. Preference is given to scholars with two to six years of experience after obtaining their doctorates.
