Role: Senior Policy Advisor

Team: Programmes and Policy team


I am CARE UK’s Senior Policy Advisor on Conflict and Humanitarian. I have recently returned from Somaliland where I was assessing the impact of the drought and the humanitarian response. At CARE, I also work on the Yemen crisis and Syria, and advise on conflict sensitivity, resilient markets, and cash in fragile and conflict-affected contexts.

Prior to joining CARE, I worked in programming for the United Nations and NGOs, most recently in Northern Iraq on the combined Syrian refugee and Islamic State crisis. I have addressed: gang violence with the UN Stabilization Mission in Haiti, the reintegration of armed groups including the FARC and paramilitaries in Colombia, and reconciliation among ethnic groups in Bosnia-Herzegovina.

I have written for The Independent and Huffington Post.
