Sam Ashby

Analyst Intern

Start date: June 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 on the tracking of finance towards climate change-related activities and projects.

Previous experience: I am studying for a BSc in Politics with Economics at the University of Bath. Before this, I studied Politics as part of my A-levels at Dubai College in the UAE, and gained important experience on dealing with data at Nord Anglia Education, where I analysed changes in school fees against student performance and inspection ratings. I became fascinated by Dubai’s ability to turn poverty into prosperity within decades, and am excited to learn about the world’s many other development trajectories.
