Graduate Research Analyst,
Digital Planet
I'VE BEEN WORKING ON
Understanding the role of technology in education, especially with bridging the gap between talent and opportunity across the world.
AN INSIGHT I DISCOVERED
There is a lot of asymmetry with respect to talent and opportunity in the technology sector. Markets don't always have the ability to absorb the skills and capacities that exist within it, while employers demanding a specific set of skills have difficulty finding the right talent.
I'M PASSIONATE ABOUT
Ensuring that programs aimed to maximize social impact are informed, designed, and implemented based on rigorous evidence and research.
Impactful research requires resources.
