About Derek Richardson

Derek’s research areas lie at the intersection of global health, international development, and organizations, with a regional focus on Cambodia and Southeast Asia. He is particularly interested in how international NGOs and intergovernmental organizations deliver healthcare to developing countries, how colonial/postcolonial relations affect inequalities between countries, and how Western ideas about health and medicine are interpreted in aid-receiving countries. Derek received B.A.s in sociology and biology from the University of Virginia in 2018.
