Hillary Corwin

Ph.D. Candidate at the University of Texas at Austin

About Me


My name is Hillary Corwin. I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Government at the University of Texas at Austin, specializing in international relations and political methodology.  

I am a political economist researching topics related to economic influence and foreign policy prioritization in the post-colonial period, focusing on the strategic interactions of great and rising powers in the international system. My dissertation examines the relationships between respect for human rights in developing countries and patterns of development assistance by great and rising powers. 
I hold B.S. and M.S. degrees from the University of Texas at Dallas, and have worked with the United States Agency for International Development on Latin American economic development policy and vulnerable population programs.
