Dissertation: Dissertation topic is international humanitarian NGOs, and I examine the cultural and religious factors that have shaped their policies and ethical framework.

One of my articles won the Best Student Paper Award at the ASA Global and Transnational Sociology Section, and my dissertation received an honorable mention from the ASA Comparative Historical Sociology Section Best Dissertation Award committee.
