Hans Lofgren is a Senior Economist in the Development Economics Prospects Group (DECPG). He joined the World Bank in June 2004. At the World Bank, he developed MAMS (Maquette for Millennium Development Goal Simulations), a model for medium- to long-run country-level policy analysis that has been applied to some 50 countries with a focus on fiscal policy, MDGs, education, and the labor market (see www.worldbank.org/mams). Prior to joining the World Bank, he was a Senior Research Fellow at the International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI). At IFPRI, he worked closely with Sherman Robinson to develop the IFPRI standard CGE model, which to date may be world’s most widely used single-country CGE model. He is a Research Fellow of GTAP (Global Trade Analysis Project) for the period 2014-2017 in recognition of his contributions to single-country CGE modeling. Hans holds a Ph.D. in Economics from the University of Texas at Austin.
