I am Professor in Development Politics in the International Development Department, University of Birmingham, where I’m also a Fellow with the Institute for Global Innovation‘s 21st Century Transnational Crime research cluster and a member of the Centre for Crime, Justice & Policing. I’m also a member of the Global Initiative Against Transnational Organised Crime‘s expert network.
I am seconded part-time to DFID as a Senior Research Fellow (Governance & Conflict), working with the Governance, Conflict & Social Development Research & Evidence Division team.
My research interests are broadly in the politics of development, as well as corruption, governance, crime and aid policy. I tweet at @hamarquette and am on Linkedin at https://www.linkedin.com/in/heather-marquette-1331903/?ppe=1.
I live in Gloucestershire with my husband, Dr John Naylor, and 2 kids, Sam and Maggie. If this blog isn’t updated as often as I’d like, I blame them…
