Haley McCoin
AidData Summer Fellow

Haley McCoin is a third year undergraduate International Relations Major at the University of Texas at Austin, where she specializes in Middle East Studies and Arabic language. Haley recently spent the past spring semester studying Arabic and Jordanian Diplomacy in Amman, Jordan. At the University of Texas, she has been a research affiliate for the Conflict and Development team of Innovations for Peace and Development since the Fall of 2014, where she developed an interest in ArcGIS software and sub-national research on the relationship between conflict and humanitarian aid. In the future, Haley hopes to use her GIS background paired with her Arabic language skills to advocate for more effective forms of humanitarian aid to states in the Middle East and North Africa. Haley will be working with Nepal Monitor this summer to provide GIS support and training, as well as to contribute to geospatial analysis of data on human rights and security incidents.
