I am an MSc candidate in Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation. Within this programme, I chose the Policy Evaluation stream, as I seek to acquire the methodological skills that are required to identify and design social policies and to ascertain whether particular social policies have been effective.
I hold a BSc in Biomedical Sciences from the University of Manchester. In my undergraduate studies, I focused on the evaluation of public health interventions in the area of neglected tropical diseases. At the Department for Social Policy and Intervention, I hope to increase my understanding of the social determinants of health and learn to design and evaluate policies aiming to reduce health inequalities between different social groups.
