"Nothing works for every person, in every context. I believe it’s possible to work towards a closer understanding of whether, how, and why programs work when we are engaged with the various impacts—positive and negative — of a digital world. I work to help practitioners plan and measure services that users want to, and can, use regularly. Having open conversations about the impact of digital is one of the most interesting aspects of my job."
