Arwyn supports the Learning Team by tracking child marriage trends globally, fact checking and analysing information on child marriage hot spots, and conducting desk-based research and evidence syntheses, particularly related to integrating solutions for ending child marriage into other sectors.
Prior to joining Girls Not Brides, Arwyn worked for UNDP in Laos and for Marie Stopes International (MSI) in London. Most recently she worked in Ethiopia as a technical writer documenting MSI’s programme and research activities under SIFPO 2, a major USAID funded initiative to strengthen family planning programmes globally. Arwyn is particularly interested in how child marriage intersects with other aspects of development, such as sexual and reproductive health and education.
Arwyn holds an MSc in Population and Development and speaks English, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese and basic German.
