During her Master’s, she also completed a six-month internship with the Center for Research on Multinational Corporations (SOMO), where she helped investigate working conditions in the spinning mills of Tamil Nadu, India. Martha received her Bachelor’s degree from Davidson College, North Carolina, with a double-major in Political Science and Russian Studies. At The Broker, she is looking forward to working on projects surrounding gender, inclusive development and sustainability, whilst bridging the gap between the academic and policy worlds.
