I am an economist with a PhD in education interested in equity and effectiveness in education, education policy monitoring, and data science.
I have extensive research and teaching experience in advanced quantitative methods including, multilevel models, structural equation models, psychometric models, causal inference techniques, and spatial analysis. I have developed the R package ‘intsvy’ with analysis and visualisation tools for large-scale assessment datasets, like PISA and TIMSS.
At the University of Oxford, I have led the MSc Research Design and Methodology pathway in my role as Research Fellow at the Department of Education. As an independent consultant for UNESCO, UNICEF, World Bank, Open Society Foundations, and Inter-American Development Bank, I have contributed to capacity building in data analysis for education policy, dashboard development for policy monitoring, and production of policy briefs, factsheets, and research reports across different countries in Africa, Latin America, and Europe.
