Karim has a first class BSc in Economics from the University of East Anglia and an MSc in Developmental Economics with distinction from the School of Oriental and African Studies.
“I’m excited to use my skills and experience to help create a fairer and more equal society by helping improve the quality and quantity of essential services for members of society to utilise.”
During his postgraduate dissertation, Karim undertook primary research into the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic on the time-use of carers of people with disabilities within the UK. This involved combining quantitative time-use research diaries, a literature review, and qualitative semi-structured interviews to gain an understanding of the scale, distribution, and effect of care work undertaken by carers in the UK.
Before joining Cordis Bright, Karim worked as an academic mentor in schools, leading interventions with children and young people who have missed large periods of time in education during the Covid-19 pandemic.
