Previously, I worked in various positions for almost four years in Benin on behalf of the German-Beninese development cooperation. Recently, I supported the local school authorities with regard to the de-concentration/ devolution interface. I have a Master’s degree in Project Management for Development Cooperation and a bachelor’s degree as an elementary and secondary school teacher (equivalent to PGCE).  I have focused on educational administration, sector decentralisation, sustainable and global education in my work; however, monitoring & evaluation,  in particular, results-based monitoring according to the Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GmbH) GIZ guidelines are my methodological preferences,  which I specialized in for my master thesis and in my various employment settings.


I am a doctoral research student in the Centre of International Education (CIE) of the Department of Education.
