Biography

I joined the School of International Development, University of East Anglia, as a PhD candidate in October 2019. My research explores the interrelated political, cultural and social dimensions of war memory in Vietnam, providing an ethnographic case study of a state-managed war museum in Ho Chi Minh City. 

I am a Cumberland Lodge Scholar (2019-2021 cohort). Scholars play an active role in Cumberland Lodge's interdisciplinary conferences, consultations, public lectures and other programmes over two academic years. Training in public speaking and writing for different audiences is provided, along with ongoing mentoring in intellectual leadership. Scholars have the chance to network with senior figures in public life and to participate in, or help to lead discussions with, people of all ages, backgrounds and perspectives that ultimately inform recommendations for practical action and policy change.

I am an experienced public policy analyst and political advisor. I was Head of Office to Sian Berry and Caroline Russell, two elected London Assembly Members, leading a team of researchers scrutinising the policies of Sadiq Khan, Mayor of London. I also contributed to an APPG inquiry report on the future of UK-Sudan relations, completed internships with BRAC in Bangladesh and in Amnesty International’s South East Asia team.

I completed my BA in East Asian Studies at the School of East Asian Studies, University of Sheffield and my MA in International Development at the Institute of Development Policy and Management, University of Manchester.
