Amanda Beatty has worked on research related to social protection and human development in low- and middle-income countries, particularly in Africa and Asia, for the last 20 years. She recently joined Youth Impact, where she works on expanding Youth Impact’s global A/B testing and survey practices.

Amanda has worked on a wide range of education research initiatives, for example studies related to improving teacher competencies, parental engagement in education, community-based early childhood programs, expanding pre-primary education, school choice, the political influence of teacher unions, and the learning crisis.
