I joined Cambridge University Press and Assessment as a Research Officer in the Educational Measurement strand. I am interested in using data and statistical methods to explore and explain various issues, including evaluating the impact of programmes on students’ educational outcomes and beyond.

Prior to joining the organisation, I spent two years in the energy sector doing data analytics and consulting with wide-ranging clients such as policymakers, power plant developers and investors. My educational background is in Economics with a specialised interest in using econometrics to address social issues. During my postgraduate studies at the University of Cambridge, I analysed the impact of shortfalls in family income on Malawian children’s school and health outcomes. I’ve also conducted research examining how immigrants’ English proficiency affects their assimilation into the host country.

Outside of work, I enjoy yoga, cooking, baking, hiking and trying new experiences, such as learning salsa dancing.
