The Kellogg Institute for International Studies, part of the University of Notre Dame’s new Keough School of Global Affairs, is an interdisciplinary community of scholars that promotes research, provides educational opportunities, and builds linkages related to democracy and human development.
Kyle Murphy currently conducts research with Professor Erin McDonnell investigating the effects political institutions have on child mortality. This research has a primary focus on democracy, and involves analyzing past studies done on democracy and child mortality in order to compile all relevant data for a forthcoming meta-analysis. Murphy also received a Kellogg ISP Conference Grant last spring to attend Unite For Sight’s Global Health & Innovation Conference at Yale University. This Unite For Sight event sees attendees from all 50 states and from 55 countries, and it is the world’s largest global health and social entrepreneurship conference.
