About Derek Richardson

Derek graduated from the University of Virginia in 2018 where he earned B.A.s in biology and sociology. His undergraduate sociology thesis examined the kinds of relationships health NGOs in Cambodia have with the Cambodian state and assessed how might health NGOs’ activities be either bolstering or undermining the Cambodian state’s capacity to govern. His research interests include medical sociology, mental health and illness, globalization, development, and organizations.
