Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.  He joined Georgetown in January 2005 after more than 25 years of distinguished service at the World Bank. At Georgetown, Dr. Dahlman’s research and teaching explore how the rise of the BRICs are affecting global power, and  how rapid advances in science, technology and information are influencing the growth prospects of nations  and economic relations in a rapidly globalizing world.

He is currently doing research on the global innovation system which provides a broad perspective on the forces shaping competition and cooperation across nations including governments, transnational corporations, and universities.  Dr. Dahlman earned a B.A, magna cum laude from the Woodrow Wilson School of Princeton University (1972) and a PhD in economics from Yale University (1979).
