Enrique Valencia López

Enrique Valencia López is a PhD student in the Policy, Politics and Leadership cluster at the School of Education. His research interests relate to three broad areas: the stratification of education by gender, immigration status and ethnicity; the measurement of teacher working conditions and well-being; and education in Latin America.

Before coming to Berkeley, Enrique worked for Mexico’s National Institute for Educational Evaluation and Assessment (INEE) in both the Policy and Indicators area. During that time, he co-authored Mexico’s first report on the educational conditions of indigenous peoples and Mexicans of African Descent. He has also been a volunteer Research Assistant for UNDP China and UNEP. Enrique holds a Master’s in Social Policy from KU Leuven in Belgium and a BA from College of the Atlantic.
