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.
I am a PhD student in theology (moral/ethics track). Before coming to Notre Dame to study theology I completed an MA in Global Studies through the Erasmus Mundus Global Studies program, which provided me with the opportunity to study at the University of Vienna (Austria), Roskilde University (Denmark), and Stellenbosch University (South Africa). This sparked my interest in the role religion can play in development and peacebuilding.
Currently, my research is focused on the role religion can play in nonviolent resistance and the impact of women in nonviolent liberation movements.
