Senior Associate, Measurement and Impact

Hanna is a Monitoring Evaluation and Learning (MEL) professional interested in creating systems that encourage experimentation and innovation.

She led the MREL workstream of a 6.5-year inclusive finance programme tasked to support digital services innovation for rural customers in Ghana, Tanzania and Zambia. In addition to systems design, Hanna is interested in practical tools that can support data-driven decision-making. She contributed to the development of an application to integrate spatial data into strategic planning and operations of financial services providers, and led the development of a web portal that allows product development teams to create data-driven customer personas based on publicly available demographic and health data in Nigeria. As a researcher she worked on numerous impact evaluations using a range of methods and instruments including rigorous experimental design and exploratory qualitative methods.
