Adelaida Correa Miranda

Pearson Fellow Alum, MPP '17

Adelaida Correa Miranda is a fellow with TechnoServe, an international nonprofit that promotes business solutions to poverty in the developing world by linking people to information, capital, and markets in Zambia. She is leading a study on the interventions of such solutions for African food enterprises in Zambia, Kenya, Ethiopia, Malawi, and Tanzania. She graduated with honors from Harris Public Policy, and her thesis was on impact evaluation for an education program.

Prior to studying at Harris, Correa Miranda applied her skills in quantitative analysis to various economic analyst positions—most recently for LATAM Airlines Group. Concurrently, her volunteer work serving disadvantaged elderly populations in India and Chile has instilled a desire to develop policies that protect them from poverty and conflict. While a student, she worked under the Development Economics Vice Presidency at the World Bank. She examined several countries’ credit reporting systems to evaluate their performance. In this role, she interfaced with country representatives from Latin America and Africa as they explained how new reforms and procedures ease access to credit and consequently facilitate doing business around the world.
