Bio/Description

Deirdre M. Moloney, Ph.D. has been the Director of Fellowships Advising at Princeton for almost a decade. She is the first point of contact for students applying for the Rhodes, Marshall, Gates, Schwarzman, and many other awards. She has taught courses and published on U.S. immigration history, including, most recently, National Insecurities: Immigrants and U.S. Deportation Policy (2012), for which she received research funding from the Woodrow Wilson Center for International Scholars and the National Endowment for the Humanities. As an undergraduate, she studied abroad in Nairobi and continues to travel regularly, including visits to her extended family in Galway. Those experiences influence her work with undergraduates and alumni on their proposals for undertaking research, projects, and study across the globe. She practices “slow” yoga, has an excitable Yorkshire Terrier, and reads fiction whenever she can. She often meets Princetonians when abroad, serendipitously or by design.
