Grace Goodell "former SC&D director, earned her Ph.D. in anthropology from Columbia University with a dissertation based on two-and-one-half years of field research in the World Bank's showcase Dez Irrigation Project in Khuzestan Province, Iran. The first agricultural anthropologist at the International Rice Research Institute in the Philippines, she has been a visiting scholar at the Australian National University and at the Harvard Institute for International Development, a fellow in law and development at the Harvard Law School, and a fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. Goodell's field research and applied work frequently link her with agricultural scientists in two main areas of agricultural development: crop protection and irrigation. She has had short-term assignments with numerous development agencies, and has served on various advisory boards. She is currently writing a book on the non-economic factors behind the rapid rise of East Asia's "four little dragons" (Hong Kong, Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea). Goodell has also lectured at various universities, published numerous articles, and collaborated in writing a university-level agricultural textbook for use in developing countries.“ [1]
