Kai has largely focused on response-wide tracking of aid recipients’ perceptions across Lebanon, Somalia, and Uganda over the past few years at Ground Truth Solutions. Additionally, she has worked with individual organisations to set up and implement their own feedback mechanisms to engage with the communities they serve. Kai’s interest in the perceptions and experiences of asylum seekers and refugees was shaped by her master’s programme, during which she conducted in-depth interviews with refugee communities in the UK and Egypt. In addition to this, Kai has extensive volunteer experience in aid distribution and educational programmes with refugees in Edinburgh, Cairo, and Calais.
Kai holds a master's in advanced Arabic from Edinburgh University and a bachelor's in political science and Arabic from the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS).
