Since joining CGA’s Juba office, as one of six Fellows in 2015, Emily has been working predominantly on the DFID-funded Girl’s Education South Sudan programme, with a focus on the programme’s Knowledge, Evidence and Research (KER) component. Under KER, she has conducted qualitative and quantitative research in schools and communities across South Sudan and trained local partner organisations in data collection in the Greater Upper Nile region and former Lakes state. In 2016 she coordinated the GESS Midline research and undertook qualitative research in former Lakes, Jonglei and Upper Nile states, data analysis and reporting for CGA-led surveys, as well as dissemination of overall findings and reports.
Prior to moving to South Sudan, Emily worked for a development consultancy in the UK and Belgium, developing proposals for a range of donors for projects in Africa and Asia. She has also previously worked for a UK-based NGO supporting community-based organisations in areas of ongoing or recent conflict, working on advocacy and communications activities for South Sudan and Sudan immediately after independence.
