Interests in development:


International development through non-traditional means, including the mobilization of sexual minorities (the LGBTQI community), women and marginal ethnic/social groups to achieve social and political equality. My interests primarily lie in the application of human and civil rights law to development, shifting the paradigm from economic growth per se to development by and for endemic populations.
