Helen Campbell-Pickford is a postdoctoral researcher on the Mutuality in Business project.

Her work on the project focuses on learning and leadership, relationships between MNCs and local communities in developing countries, and the impact of business-led social interventions. 

Helen comes from a background in development and education, and has an interest in learning in organisations and the creation and distribution of knowledge in policy making. In addition to her work at the School, Helen researches the relationship between communities and their built environment for the Historic Towns Forum at Kellogg College, Oxford.

Helen’s work in education and development has also taken her to Kenya, Malaysia, the Democratic Republic of Congo and Oman. In addition to assessing the needs of educators for training in pedagogy and content knowledge, she has worked in engaging communities in education post-conflict.

Helen gained a BA (2:1) in English Literature at Oxford University, P.G.C.E. at Cambridge University, and took an MA in Theatre while working as a teacher trainer in Sri Lanka. For her DPhil in Education, she is studying how policy making organisations in India generate information on the response of rural communities to interventions informing them about their right to education.
