Dr. Connie Nshemereirwe is an independent science and policy facilitator, and acts at the science-policy interface as a trainer, writer and speaker. She is the current Co-Chair of the Global Young Academy, and is also a member of the Steering Committee of the Africa Science Leadership Programme (ASLP) based at the University of Pretoria in South Africa.
Her expertise is in the broad field of higher education quality, and in late 2016 she concluded a 15-year career as an academic to start her own consultancy. In this capacity she works with various international multi-disciplinary teams that conduct training on Pedagogical Skills for Academics, Communication and Leadership Skills, and Science and Policy engagement across Africa.
She is also active in Civil Society through the Ugandan Think Tank, Kigo Thinkers, and has been part of various public engagement activities on the subject of adequacy and relevance of formal education in Uganda.
Her undergraduate studies were in Civil Engineering, but in later years she made the shift to Education by completing a master’s degree in the design of education and training systems at the University of Twente in 2004, later followed by a PhD in Educational Measurement at the same University in 2014.
