Advisor: George Bond

TC degree, program, specialization and year of graduation: M.A., International Educational Development/International Educational Policy Studies, 2005

Integrative Project title: Multi-Disciplinary Development Approaches for Haiti: A Case Study of PROGRESA and its Transferability

Description of your current position: I am a research consultant and PhD student at the University of London Institute of Education.

Something special about your TC experience: The two courses that took me abroad, to Tanzania and Armenia, were the definitive highlights of my TC experience. In both cases I was able to apply the theories and knowledge gained from my coursework in a direct and meaningful way to working with counterparts from both countries. TC would benefit from prioritizing international learning opportunities for the IED program.
