Further information


I have a Bachelor's degree from the University of Birmingham in International Studies with French, I then moved on to Reading University to do a Masters in Social Development and Sustainable Livelihoods.

In my Master's I was introduced to small-scale and artisanal mining in one of my modules and it soon became a subject I was curious about, so I decided to dedicate three years of my life to make some discoveries and attempt to put my own brick in this massive wall of knowledge.

Research Interests

Young faces in dangerous places: exploring the work of girls in the artisanal mines of Northern Ghana

My focus will be on understanding the motivation behind girls working in artisanal mines, to understand what kind of work they do and to understand the historical and cultural dimensions of child labour.

The purpose of this research is to explore whether this ‘problem’ of child labour is indeed a problem, whether it is universal concept which can be applied to both girls and boys on a global scale. This will serve to inform donors and policymakers so that they can start to invest money wisely into development projects as well as make laws that are relevant to the people concerned.
