Role: I’m a Director of Research with EdTech Hub and a Senior Research Fellow at the ODI. My work with the Hub involves leading a stream of Covid-19 new evidence, a focus on longer-term ‘systems’ research, and oversight of the ODI team’s contributions.
Background: I’ve worked extensively on education in conflict and crises and am passionate about adapting education approaches to reach the most marginalised. Previous work found me responding to the Asian tsunami, in refugee camps throughout the Middle East, and travelling to remote parts of Africa, with a chunk of time at the UN Secretariat thrown in for good measure.
Fun Fact: I’ve got young twins who are just discovering the world of EdTech - a real world lens to think about ‘what works’ in relation to technology and learning!
