Start date with DI: July 2017
Where I am based: Bristol, UK
What I do: I am an intern in the Research & Analysis team. My duties include gathering, checking and evaluating data, as well as interpreting it and providing analysis. I work extensively in development and humanitarian finance, looking at the financial tracking of international assistance to crises.
Previous experience: I’m enrolled at the University of Bath, where I’m studying for a BSc in Economics and Politics. I lived in Singapore for a year, back in 2014–15, which sparked my interest in the field of international development: I find it fascinating to see how a poverty-stricken fishing harbour has managed to turn into an independent and prosperous city-state in little more than 50 years.
