I research the political sociology of international development and globalization. My current program of research has two concentrations: (1) foreign aid as a transnational process of development; and (2) gender and political power in the developing world.
My recent SSHRC-funded project, "The institutionalization of the global foreign aid network, 1960-2008," used social network analysis and cross-national statistical techniques to analyse the composition and evolution of the global bilateral foreign aid network and examines its relationship to globalization in the developing world.
I am interested in working with graduate students with research interests in the sociology of development and globalization, especially on topics related to foreign aid.
