Both Banerjee and his wife are professors at Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) while Michael Kremer is a professor at Harvard University.

Incidentally, Mrs. Duflo is also the youngest winner of The Nobel prize in Economic Sciences. On the winners, the Nobel committee stated-“ The research conducted by this year’s Laureates has considerably improved our ability to fight global poverty.
