Fernanda Ramirez-Espinoza

I am a second year Ph.D. student at Harvard Graduate of Arts and Sciences, on the Educational Policy and Program Evaluation concentration. My research is focused on Latin-American educational policies, analyzing the impact that they have had in educational outcomes and socioeconomic composition of schools.

Prior to beginning my doctoral studies at Harvard, I pursued a Master of Public Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School. The Chilean magazine “El Sábado” awarded her with the Young Leaders award in 2008. She is a founder and board member of Educación 2020, a Chilean educational advocacy NGO. She worked at the Ministry of Education in 2012, and then transferred to work in public policy analysis and fundraising for Educación 2020. In 2014 she started working at America Solidaria Haiti as its Executive Director, based in Port au Prince.
