Policy and Research

My Name is Deren Karausta and I was born and raised in Lowestoft, East Anglia. Currently studying Business Economics at the University of East Anglia. I have a goal to work in the research and policy recommendation sector.

I am of a Turkish Cypriot and English descent. I have three older sisters and one younger brother.

During my studies i has been granted a scholarship in Economics for high A-Level achievements. Also, this academic year I placed second in the Norwich Economic Papers Annual Competition.

My studies have been primarily focussed on real life occurrences. I have developed an interest for analysing data and translating this into more understandable formats. I will use these skills to analyse the various indicators in Africa. Providing the African Health Organisation with policy recommendations to improve these figures and improve the quality of healthcare in many regions of Africa.
