Research students

Welcome. This page is a resource for the research student community at International Development (MPhils and PhDs). You will find useful information on the range of our research areas as well as biographical and contact information on all of us. 

As you will see we are a diverse group. ID attracted us from all parts of the world and from the gamut of social sciences. As Europeans, South Asians, East Asians, Latin Americans, Africans, North Americans (and yes even some British students), we have been drawn to the LSE. As economists, anthropologists, political scientists, historians, geographers, lawyers (and even a classicist), we somehow manage not only to get along but thrive at ID.

Enjoy our website and do feel free to contact us. We would like to hear from you. Better still, come and join us at the world's best place for the study of social science and one of the most stimulating and dynamic departments for the study of development.
