I am an international expert, researcher, consultant, and trainer on Youth, Peace & Security, with a particular focus on youth-inclusive peace and mediation processes within transitional and conflict states. 

Over the last 7 years, I have researched and published a series of  reports on youth-led peace and mediation efforts with international multilateral, non-governmental and think tanks, including initiating and co-authoring the first global policy paper on youth participation in peace processes (We are Here), commissioned by the UN Secretary-General's Envoy on Youth.

 

Based in Myanmar from 2015 - 2020, I work on research, strategic policy and advocacy, and trainings to diverse stakeholders on conflict transformation and inclusive peace processes
