InSIS Welcomes Sara de Wit

InSIS is happy to welcome new Postdoctoral research fellow Sara de Wit, who will be joining the Institute to work on the new research project 'Forecasts for Anticipatory Humanitarian Action' (FATHUM).

Trained in anthropology and African Studies Sara has a strong empirical orientation, with long-term fieldwork experience. She has carried out “ethnographies of aid” – at the intersection of STS, development theories, environmental anthropology and postcolonial studies – in which she broadly focused on how globally circulating ideas, such as climate change and notions of development, travel, and what happens when they are translated by varying actors along the translation chain.
