Dr. Susan Watkins has been conducting research in Malawi since 1998.  She was Principal Investigator or Co-Principal Investigator on a longitudinal survey that began in 1998 and ended it 2012; she spent a great deal of time in the rural Malawi in conjunction with implementing this survey, and continued to be present during subsequent smaller research studies.  In addition she initiated an ethnographic study that began in 1999 and is still continuing.  This study trained selected villagers to be participant observers in the villages and to write monthly journals on what they heard and saw. These sources of information about Malawi are complemented by the work of  more than 50 graduate students whom she mentored. The results of these studies - survey, ethnographic, graduate students - have been published in peer reviewed journals. Dr. Watkins reserves the right to ask for remuneration in some cases.
