Alix Leroy


Alix is a researcher at What Works for Children’s Social Care. She works on a number of randomised controlled trials, analysing and interpreting the results.

Prior to WWC, she worked on a city-level study in Kananga, DRC where she was responsible for ensuring that the study protocols were followed by the local partners. She also controlled the quality of the data by monitoring the collection process and setting up statistic checks.

Alix holds a degree in physics engineering and in economics from the ULB in Belgium. She then completed a MSc in environment and development, in which she discovered the power of impact evaluations in development economics.

Running along the canal is her favourite way of breaking free but her real passion are animals. She has a parrot, two chickens, one baby donkey, two horses and a cat, though they happen not to live in her London flat.

She enjoys alternative films, and going to the theatre and gigs with her friends.
