Alkire and fellow OPHI member economist James Foster developed the Alkire Foster Method, a method of measuring multidimensional poverty. It includes identifying ‘who is poor’ by considering the range of deprivations they suffer, and aggregating that information to reflect societal poverty.

She holds a MPhil in Christian Political Ethics and an MSc in Economics for Development from the University of Oxford.
