I've been working in and on Afghanistan since 2004, and from 2006-2010 worked in Kabul for the Afghanistan Research and Evaluation Unit as a researcher in the gender and governance teams. Since returning to the UK in 2010 I've worked as a consultant researcher for a number of international research and implementing agencies, including USIP, ODI, Chatham House, International IDEA, the National Endowment for Democracy and National Democratic Institute.
