Where I am based: Bristol, UK
What I do: I work as an analyst with the Research and Analysis Team, focusing on humanitarian assistance, crises and vulnerability. This includes contributing to work on the Global Humanitarian Assistance Report, as well as other thematic reports and consultancies. I am particularly interested in alternative forms of financing for the humanitarian sector and gendered considerations in humanitarian responses.
Previous experience: Before joining Development Initiatives, I completed a Master’s in development management at the London School of Economics and Political Science, focusing on humanitarian studies and the use of quantitative analysis in development. My MSc dissertation looked at the impact of educating girls in Bangladesh on fertility rates. Prior to this I worked as a data analyst in a consulting group, focusing on energy markets with an interest in renewable energy. As an undergraduate, I studied economics at the University of Nottingham.
