Anysia Nguyen is reading for an MSc in Evidence-Based Social Intervention and Policy Evaluation. Before coming to Oxford, she obtained a BA (hons) in International Politics from King's College London where she graduated with a first. Her undergraduate dissertation analysed the social and economic factors explaining second-generation immigrants re-migration. During her time at King's College London, she also assisted Dr. Rubén Ruiz-Rufino in his research on the institutional and economic factors behind electoral violence in Africa.
Last summer, she volunteered at Macmillan Cancer Support, where she helped the Evaluation and Impact team build Theories of Change to evaluate programmes that aimed at improving patients' experiences. Additionally, she supported the Health Data team there, by updating and analysing the Cancer Patients Experience Survey, as well as creating maps and interactive dashboards on PowerBI.
Her main methodological interests lie in quantitative analysis of large datasets, natural experiments and text analysis. Her research interests include: the effect of innovation and industrial strategy on the labour market, the political economy of the welfare states, and immigrants' integration into educational systems.
