While at Pardee, Zach was involved in the 50 states sub-regionalization project as well as some of our ongoing work in South Africa.

Zach’s current professional interests include human security and structural violence, state fragility and employing analytical tools to better inform policy decisions and accelerate the alleviation of poverty.
