The department is a lively community that is recognised internationally as one of the top centres for research and teaching in development studies.
I am a DPhil Candidate at the Oxford Department of International Development, where I previously completed my MPhil in Development Studies. My research, both at the MPhil and DPhil levels, focuses on the intersection of labour and migration in agriculture, specifically in the Southern Italian region of Apulia, a hub of agricultural production. Prior to my time at Oxford, I lived in New York City, where I received a BA in Anthropology and a BA in Politics from New York University. Following my undergraduate studies, I briefly worked in the state’s political and non-profit sector, where I coordinated state and national campaign’s field efforts
