Aspiring change maker • Passionate storyteller • Lifelong learner
I am a young professional and aspiring academic with the goal of producing research that will positively effect progressive social change. As a passionate feminist, I am particularly interested in the gender-transformatory potential of the welfare state, with an emphasis on Southern social policy. In addition, I am interested in universalism in social policy, beneficiary experiences, and gender and development more widely.
With a background in public policy and communications, I am keen on tying research to practice, a value that I hope will inform my emerging career. With experience ranging from field research in the Peruvian Andes to government consultancy work in sub-Saharan Africa, I thrive in the unfamiliar, am happiest when faced with a challenge, and refuse to accept "good enough."
Feel free to reach out at any time at C.S.Halpenny@lse.ac.uk.
