Assistant Editor, Development in Practice
Rebecca joined INTRAC at the end of August 2011. She is part of the editorial team for Development in Practice, and also provided editorial support on materials from the EC Cypriot Civil Society in Action Programme 2010-11.
She is interested in public health and development, and the ways in which these interact with each other and particularly with gender and power; her work has had sub-Saharan Africa as a regional focus. Prior to coming to INTRAC, Rebecca worked for a year as a medical writer, and also spent a semester of her first degree on field study in East Africa, largely in Tanzania, where she hopes one day to return.
She holds an MSc in Global Health and Public Policy from the University of Edinburgh, and a joint-honours BA in International Development and Political Science from McGill University.
