Rose has a strong academic background in quantitative research methods, having obtained a BSc in Economics and International Development from the University of Bath, and an MSc in Economics and Econometrics from the University of Nottingham. After this she spent almost four years in Tanzania, working in project coordination and impact evaluation. This included two years in a capacity building role within the Ministry of Trade, and later working for the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the World Bank.
Rose has always enjoyed taking part in any sport or activity available, is a big advocate of giving anything a try, and particularly loves competing in team sports. For a number of years she represented Great Britain’s Junior Women’s Ultimate Frisbee Team, and travelled to various international tournaments. In her spare time in Tanzania she coached ultimate Frisbee to a local team, and learnt many new activities including free diving and underwater hockey. Since moving back to the UK she enjoys netball, touch rugby, climbing and swimming.
Rose strongly believes in sport as a driving force for positive change. She is excited to join Sported, where her role is currently based around database management, survey design and communicating data. She welcomes the opportunity to apply her research skills to the Sport for Development sector and in the long run hopes to apply more sophisticated statistical methods to evidence the positive impact that sport can have on people’s lives.
