Annalena is a Research Officer at the Atlantic Fellows for Social and Economic Equity programme where she contributes to fellowship curriculum development, teaching, and mentoring.
Her work involves interdisciplinary approaches to inequality research, particularly those that focus on inequality perceptions, political preferences, and economic uncertainty. She further works on social protection and taxation in contexts of the global South. She is also interested in initiatives that rethink development research and practice through a decolonial lens.
Prior to joining LSE, she was a Research Associate at UNU WIDER, a Visiting Fellow at Harvard University and works as a consultant with partners such as GIZ, GDN, and ODI. She holds a DPhil in Development Studies from the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex.
