Meet Reid Lidow, an international relations and political science at the USC Dornsife College of Letters, Arts and Sciences and member of USC’s class of 2014. Lidow was so fascinated by his research on political reform in Burma — spurred by an introductory course in security issues — that he published six research papers on the topic as an undergraduate. His passion for international relations will next lead him to Cambridge University on a Gates/Cambridge Scholarship.
