New name, new "job", new websites!

Since leaving South Sudan I got married, worked for UNICEF UK and started a PhD researching street connected children.

My name is now Gemma Pearson. I am studying for my PhD at Royal Holloway, University of London in partnership with StreetInvest, a charity which trains outreach workers to work with street-connected children in over a dozen different countries.

My academic profile page can be found here. I am blogging with other PhD students on issues relating to street-connected children and research which can be found here. I am also tweeting @GemKPea.

If you have any questions about my time working in South Sudan, or about my research with street-connected children, you can contact me on

Thanks for reading!
