Dr. Dietrich’s work is supported by different types of data. Dr. Dietrich tells us how she utilizes qualitative and anecdotal data to illustrate political and economic mechanisms that impact foreign aid allocation and effectiveness, and about how she combines this information with quantitative data to ensure that her analyses and conclusions are supported by facts.
