Dr Ngo has commenced a one-year appointment as a Postdoctoral Fellow in the Religion and Globalization cluster with effect from 26 July 2016.

She earned her PhD in Anthropology at Swinburne University of Technology, Australia. Her doctoral research examined the role of religious actors in the humanitarian field, focusing on a case study of a Christian faith-based organisation in Morocco working with Sub-Saharan African irregular migrants. Her research interests include how constructions of both the ‘sacred’ and the ‘secular’ are negotiated within the humanitarian and development field, and how an examination of these processes render into question values that are assumed as universal and neutral.

During her time at ARI, she will complete a book manuscript based on her doctoral dissertation. She will also be working on a new project examining the politics of religion and development in Cambodia, with a focus on Catholic organisations.
