I lead UUKi's engagement work with sub-Saharan Africa, working closely with universities and governments from across the continent. I also lead UUKi's involvement in the FCDO's higher education systems reform programme, SPHEIR. I provide partnership management for four of the projects, supporting monitoring, evaluation and learning, outreach and engagement, and financial reporting.
Before joining UUKi I spent several years working in the international development sector in India and Tanzania where I worked as a Project Manager for medium-sized NGO's. Prior to this, I spent a year in Japan teaching English. Working at UUKi provides me with incredible opportunities to meet fascinating people from around the World. Being able to travel globally and speak on behalf of the entire UK higher education sector is a great privilege.
