Personal Statement: 

I'm a sixth year PhD candidate.  My dissertation research examines comparative statebuilding processes in the DR Congo and Indonesia.  I am also co-founder and chair of the board at the Mawazo Institute, which helps East African women launch careers as researchers and policy experts.  

Before coming to Berkeley, I was a research manager in development economics at Innovations for Poverty Action.  I have work experience in Rwanda, the DR Congo, and Ghana.  I have an MA in international relations from Johns Hopkins - SAIS, and a BA in geography and French from Dartmouth.  You can download my CV or view it at LinkedIn.
