Karen is ODI’s Chief Press Officer and leads our media liaison work, connecting journalists with researchers across ODI’s seven research programmes.
Karen was previously a communications professional in UK central government, based in Whitehall, working closely with Ministers in the foreign and global affairs, international development and business and trade ministries.
