Profile Information

Please feel free to provide a short bio about yourself or the work of your organization (no more than 3 paragraphs)
I just graduated from Swarthmore College with a Political Science major and Peace and Conflict Studies and Psychology minors. I am now pursuing a Master's degree at Georgetown in Security Studies with a concentration in International Security.

Most of my research in college has revolved around foreign aid and remedying the problems with its donation, distribution, and use. Recently, I have also devoted time to researching how aid can be used to promote peace in the places where it is donated.

Ideally, I would like to pursue a career path that continues to allow me to research and address these issues.
Please list the countries and/or regions in which you (or your organization) have direct and significant expertise
What is your current country of residence (or location of your organization)?
What is your current job (and organization) and/or where and what field are you studying?

Hi Kira,

Thank you for your thought provoking blog and the arguements that you raise.  I am about to commence my MA Thesis which is very much concerned with this question.  I would very much value keeping in touch with you from time to time around these matters.
