M.A. Candidate – Class of 2019

I was born in California, but was mostly raised in the suburbs of New York City. My parents are French and French-Australian, and I speak French at home with my mother and when visiting family. I received my Bachelor’s degree in Economics and Mathematics at Boston University with a minor in Business Administration and Management. I studied abroad in the spring of 2016 as part of an exchange program at Università Bocconi in Milan, where I took economics and management courses. I studied abroad a second time for two months in the summer of 2017, where I interned at the Prince of Wales Hospital Foundation in Sydney, Australia, and took a political economy course. My greatest interests are in international applications of development and political economics, which I would love to translate into a career either in corporate social responsibility at an international company or in a non-governmental or intergovernmental organization. During my time as a Global Thought M.A. student, I am very interested in researching connections between religion, government, and human rights protection. Specifically, I plan to examine how the religiosity of a country affects its protections of women’s civil liberties. Another area I am interested in learning more about is how organizations, such as branches of the United Nations, handle corruption in local government when trying to inject financial aid. An overarching theme in any research I conduct will likely be the protection of women’s rights.
