I am currently part of two large multi-institutional research initiatives funded by the Department for International Development of the United Kingdom (DFID) and the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) respectively. For detailed project descriptions, please follow the links below:
- Modeling Early Risk Indicators to Anticipate Malnutrition (MERIAM)
- Computational Modeling of Grievances and Political Instability through Global Media (INSPIRE)
I have previously worked on a three-year research project hosted at the University of Maryland that was funded by the U.S. Department of Defense’s Minerva Initiative. The project examined how foreign assistance shapes resilience to intra-state armed conflict at the sub-national level, with a primary focus on Africa. You may find further information under MINERVA project.
