The innovations I bring in are how public policy can enhance capabilities in one coherent framework. Also, how digital methods can improve outcomes for school kids. I interact with researchers from different backgrounds and disciplines. My interactive, dynamic, artistic, and avid interdisciplinary reading can provide a different flavor to the team. My intense global travels and field surveys add the human touch. As a female researcher, I care for every tiny task I perform – from preparing delicacies for my family to quantifying public policy for children.
