Melani Cammett, Dupee Faculty Fellow at the Institute, has been awarded the Mellon New Directions Fellowship, which funds scholars to pursue training outside of their own fields. Cammett, a political scientist, will train at the Harvard School of Public Health as a full-time visiting scholar and postdoctoral student. She will take coursework on health and health systems from diverse public health, sociological and anthropological perspectives during 2013-14 to further advance her current research in Lebanon, Egypt and Jordan, where she specifically examines state- and non-state providers in welfare regimes.
