Personal profile

Biography

I am a PhD candidate in the School of International Development at the University of East Anglia. My doctoral research explores the interrelated political, cultural and social dimensions of war memory in Vietnam.

Before starting my PhD, I worked as a public policy analyst at City Hall in 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 International Secretariat in the 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.

I am a Cumberland Lodge Fellow and an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (Membership number PR185912, obtained 03/11/2020). I am also an Associate Student at SOAS.
