AMIRA JADOON, PH.D. آمیرا جدون
I lived in Pakistan and Saudi Arabia, before coming to the United States for my undergraduate education. I worked in London for five years as a management consultant at Deloitte before starting my Ph.D. at Rockefeller College of Public Affairs and Policy at the University at Albany.
I studied Economics and Journalism at the University of Iowa, where I also enjoyed writing for the Daily Iowan. I obtained my Masters in Economic Development from the London School of Economics & Political Science (LSE). As a part of my research at LSE, I conducted interviews with residents of squatter settlements and government officials in Pakistan to understand the economic welfare implications of government policies. For my doctoral research, I engaged with various individuals in the security sector in Pakistan. In addition to English, I am fluent in Urdu, Hindko and Punjabi and spoken Hindi.
I enjoy taking a break from work by going for regular runs, and trying out new restaurants. I love exploring new cities and cultures, and visiting friends and family around the world whenever I get the chance.
