Director of Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL)
"Understanding impact isn't just about measuring 'what changed', but also understanding why it happened and what combination of things contributed to it. I help projects to map that change process to understand what makes a programme or approach work - and what doesn't. What makes me excited about working for Caribou Digital is the opportunity to apply impact measurement to the digital world to enable the transformational power of digital on people's lives."
