Social Policy & Intervention (2015 cohort)

I am a DPhil candidate in Social Intervention.

My doctoral thesis focuses on the economic component of the Sinovuyo Teen programme – a UNICEF-funded intervention for deprived families in rural South Africa - aiming to find out more about family’s economic hardship and whether and how the programme can promote saving, financial literacy and budgeting skills, as well as resilience to economic shocks.

I hold an MSc in Evidence-based Social Intervention and a BA in Political Sciences and International Relations from the University of Konstanz, Germany, and I have visited the Université Paris-Sorbonne for an Erasmus exchange semester. Over the past year, I have worked as a Project Manager for the Sinovuyo Teen Study in South Africa - a Randomised Controlled Trial that is run in collaboration with UNICEF, WHO, and Oxford and Cape Town University. I have also gained working experience in the United Nations Liaison Office of the Friedrich Ebert Foundation in New York City and at the Peace Research Institute in Frankfurt.
