Biography

A.B. Harvard University;
Ph.D. University of Washington

Daniel Karell's research focuses on how broad social forces — wars, migration regimes, ethnic boundaries — can inadvertently reshape local-level social relationships and, in turn, affect interpersonal social behavior like political violence and indebtedness. One of his current research projects explores how radical ideologies and local social structure co-evolve during periods of political conflict. Another project investigates how labor migrants in Pakistan form expectations and obligations while they are recruited to work overseas.
