Summer Fellow 2013
Project Title: Experience in Education Policy Design and Research in India

The Planning Commission is an institution of the Indian Government that publishes India's Five-Year Plans on economic, educational, health and other domains. Through a 5-week internship at the Planning Commission in Delhi, India, I will be involved with policy design and research in Indian higher education. My work in particular focuses on designing a research assessment framework for pre-selected universities with a view to improve the research capacity of the higher education system and align it with the socio-economic needs of the country.
