Marisa Jones



I am an International Trade and Economic Diplomacy/International Policy Development joint major at MIIS focusing on trade relations between the United States and China, and my language of focus is Mandarin. Outside of MIIS I enjoy baking, hiking, and reading and studying folklore.

Areas of interest

I am interested in studying US-Chinese relations, specifically trade relations, in addition to China’s Belt and Road Initiative.

Project description

I am completing my project on the water conflict between India and China on the Brahmaputra River. I hope to complete a podcast studying how the conflict affects the many communities living on the river, solutions through Conflict Transformation, and how they can model for other water crises.
