Kai has largely focused on tracking response-wide perceptions of aid recipients’ across several humanitarian contexts over the past few years at Ground Truth Solutions. Additionally, she has worked with a number of 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. She 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).
