For a basic paragraph, your biography should include facts like education, work, major achievements, an overview of what makes you compelling (e.g. Paul Romer is a University Professor at NYU and director of its Marron Institute of Urban Management. His work now focuses on urbanization because better urban policy offers the best chance for speeding up growth in the developing world). Note that this description will appear on the course materials we will provide to you during the Summer School. It is also an important criterion in the selection process.
