I'm currently a PhD Candidate in Political Science and International Relations at the University of Southern California and Visiting Scholar at Indiana University's Ostrom Workshop.
I study social signaling, human rights NGOs, cause prioritization, and effective altruism. My research evaluates the role of donor signaling in shaping human rights NGO strategy and behavior. My dissertation argues that in order to raise funds, HRNGOs do not need to cost-effectively advance the welfare of the stated beneficiaries. Donors pay for status benefits, and as a result, HRNGOs seek to benefit donor reputation.
