Kristen McNeill will join the Graduate Institute in 2022 with a PhD in Sociology from Brown University. Her research interests center on social drivers of economic and financial behaviors, gender inequalities, and international development, and she uses mixed qualitative and quantitative methods. Her current research in the context of microlending examines how nominally gender-neutral processes governing access to financial resources can be profoundly gendered in practice.
