Nathan Gibbons


Nathan is a Research Assistant at OPHI, joining to assist in the 2024 Global MPI Report in collaboration with the UNDP. While he is new to macroeconomic research as a history graduate, he intends to adapt his prior research focuses of genocide and humanitarian crises to current affairs regarding peace, conflict and security and begin a Master’s degree in International Development. He was the 2023 recipient of the David McEvoy Award for academic achievement and is a Wiesel-King Jr. Scholar of the Institute for the Study of Global Antisemitism and Policy (ISGAP). His thesis explores the macroeconomic components of the Armenian genocide, specifically, the interlinked processes of genocidal destruction and national economic construction visible within the transfer of property and commercial opportunity between ethno-religious groups as a core motivation of genocidal demographic engineering campaigns in Eastern Anatolia between 1909-1930.
