Role: I am a Research Fellow at EdTech Hub and work mainly in the “Systems” theme. I am interested in what role EdTech can play in improving educational access and learning for those children most at risk of falling behind. My work in the Hub is very much concerned with generating evidence about the extent to which technology can help the most disadvantaged children.
Background: Prior to my current role at EdTech Hub, I completed a PhD at the University of Cambridge on the impact of Malawi’s political settlement on teacher management at the district level. Alongside my PhD I also led and co-authored pieces of research focusing on equitable education systems for organisations such as the Mastercard Foundation, Malala Fund, and the Education Commission.
Fun Fact: I love country walks and hiking, and have climbed Mount Kilimanjaro, Mount Kinabalu, and Machu Picchu, despite having a fear of climbing downhill.
