Laurence Ford


Start date with DI: March 2018

Where I am based: Bristol

What I do: I work with Jordan Beecher in the Research & Analysis team to collect, process and analyse data for the Global Nutrition Report 2018.

Previous experience: Whilst studying for my Master’s in International Relations at Syracuse University in the US, I interned with the Near East Foundation, an international social and economic development organisation, and in a refugee post-resettlement charity. Since returning to the UK, I have compiled data for Action Against Hunger’s new Serious Acute Malnutrition website and more recently, worked as a data analyst at SafeLives, a Bristol-based domestic abuse charity. I currently run a community supper night in Bristol, serving surplus food to support vulnerable communities in the city.
