In this video Dr. Dietrich speaks about her early experiences abroad, and about how they led her to investigate poverty and “uneven development” around the world. These experiences showed Dr. Dietrich that she could contribute to the world by studying development, and by using research to inform groups and individuals with the power to provide international aid on the complexities of development.
