Senior Director, Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning
"Nothing works for every person, in every context. But I believe it’s possible to work towards a closer understanding of whether, how, and why programs, services and products work, when we engage with the multitude of impacts—positive and negative — of a digital world. I support clients to craft evidence-based theories of change for their interventions and use a range of methodologies to explore and test the theories to assess impact. Having open conversations about the impact of digital is one of the most interesting aspects of my work."
