Joshua Humphreys, Ph.D.


Joshua Humphreys is a fellow at Tellus Institute.

A historian of the social problems of capitalism, Humphreys has become a leading advocate for more sustainable and transparent forms of finance in today's exceedingly complex capital markets. He has taught at Harvard, Princeton, and NYU and in the Bard Prison Initiative. Humphreys was a Fulbright Scholar in Paris at the Ecole des Hautes Etudes en Sciences Sociales and a visiting fellow at the Ecole Normale Supérieure. He has also served as associate fellow at the Rutgers Center for Historical Analysis, visiting research associate at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies, scholar-in-residence at the Rockefeller Archive Center, and an Aspen Environment Forum Scholar.

For more than a decade, Humphreys has advised numerous nonprofits, businesses, community and labor groups, policymakers, and multilateral organizations on complex issues in sustainability and finance. His insights on trends in sustainability, shareowner advocacy, and impact investing have been widely published and regularly cited in the press, most recently in Barron's, the Boston Globe, Bloomberg, BusinessWeek, the Financial Times, the Los Angeles Times, and the Washington Post, and on NPR. He frequently speaks to audiences on these themes and has served as an expert witness in both litigation and policy arenas.

He currently serves on the Advisory Board of the Dwight Hall SRI Fund at Yale University and the Board of Advisors of the coalition for Responsible Investment at Harvard.

Dr. Humphreys received his Ph.D. in History from New York University in 2005.
