summer 2012 preview.

It’s the beginning of the end (of the semester) here in the Bronx. I’m at that treading water stage, simultaneously writing research proposals and/or literature reviews about:

  1. the impact of micro health insurance on household consumption and microcredit use in Bangladesh,
  2. the net effect of production and consumption of khat on poverty and food security in Ethiopia,
  3. the relationship between foreign aid and domestic political incentives.

Even during times as academically stressful as this, I am in love with my grad program at Fordham.

Once these papers and my other exams are all done, I’ll be thinking ahead to summer. I’ll spend much of June in Brazil at UNDP Equator Initiative events related to the UN Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development. Then I’ll be a Vittana Fellow working on microfinance for education in Accra, Ghana until classes begin in the fall. Expect updates!
