Building community and trust

Hannah D’Apice is a doctoral student in International and Comparative Education, pursuing a Master’s in Sociology and a concentration in Organizational Studies. She received a Master’s in International Education Policy Analysis from Stanford University and a Bachelor’s in Political Science from Columbia University. Her work examines the development and diffusion of global norms around education, and how these norms may influence the structure and behavior of institutions and organizations. She also studies the institutional conditions that enable marginalized groups to have greater visibility and leadership in education.

Prior to her doctoral studies, Hannah worked as a research manager, managing randomized controlled trials, and quasi-experiments evaluating the effectiveness of educational programs. In addition, she taught professionally for four years in Texas and Singapore.
