Biography:

Chris Martin is an Education Advisor for Education Reform at Cambridge University Press. He is trained as a social anthropologist, receiving his PhD from the London School of Economics in 2016. After he completed his doctoral studies, Chris was a researcher and teacher at Ateneo de Manila, University of the Philippines, and the LSE, followed by work with a healthcare and e-communications not-for-profit in the Philippines. In his current role at Cambridge University Press, Chris assists in the instigation of new Education Reform projects, develops Education Reform’s international network in the education development sector, and conducts research and analysis to support these other activities. Chris is also involved in coordinating research partnerships and activities for the group and its partners, and strengthening Education Reform’s relationship with researchers in the University of Cambridge.

He is chair of the project's research and recommendations working group.

Research Interests

Chris’s research combines the study of schooling and migration: his work investigates the links between the educational practices and mobility (geographic and social) of young people in the Philippines. His wider research interests extend to the use of ethnographic research methods, learning and education as cultural practice, the history of schooling in Southeast Asia, and the anthropological study of childhood and youth, kinship, gender, movement, and temporality.
