Elizabeth Shepherd, Research Director

I’m Elizabeth Shepherd

Zealous problem solver, global surveyor, optimist; GSOH essential

A little bit of what I do

Having spent the past decade + learning about and living in different cultures, an international theme runs throughout much of what I do. I am passionate about unpacking, demystifying and interpreting the world via human action, to make connections and forge greater understanding. This is what research means to me as a social scientist.

What I have achieved

I have been fortunate to work closely with education institutions throughout the world where research can contribute towards system-wide change and profoundly impact peoples’ lives. 2018 brings a new challenge; I am thrilled to join the IFF team and help to grow our contribution to the UK and international education sectors.
