After five years of experience working in the humanitarian sector, I am excited to have joined the BRAC UK partnerships team. As the Partnerships Officer for our Asia Portfolio, I am supporting BRAC’s teams in Bangladesh, the Philippines, Afghanistan, and Myanmar by ensuring a smooth grant management process, building and maintaining partnerships with donors across Europe, and developing high-quality proposals.

Prior to joining the development and humanitarian sector, I studied Politics and International Relations in Scotland and completed my Master’s Degree in 2018. Following this, I joined a British-based NGO in a research position before moving into the programmes department and finally overseeing their emergency response programme with projects across Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. I have a strong interest in resilience building and climate adaptation, as well as ensuring a focus on effective safeguarding across all programming.

I am proud to support BRAC’s strong principles of southern-led development by drawing on our vast experience of innovative piloting to achieve success at scale.
