ESRC Doctoral Training Partnership for Social Sciences



My research looks at how school learners in lower-income contexts develop practical ‘21st century’ skills such as creativity and problem solving. Specifically, I am examining the factors that support children’s cognitive flexibility, the basis for such skills, among pupils in Rwandan public primary schools. My work is being supervised by Dr Ricardo Sabates and advised by Dr Sara Baker, members of the REAL and PEDAL research centres respectively.
