In the News:


I am a trained behavioral scientist and have had an active career in applied research. My interests span a wide range of social and behavioral topics including gender and social change programming, participatory governance approaches, and quality improvement strategies on improving reproductive and maternal health outcomes. I have also supported innovation and implementation of programs to improve effectiveness of frontline workers, to increase use of data for decision-making, and to build capacity of government and partners to provide family planning (including long-acting methods) for adolescents and for women and girls in fragile and crisis-affected settings.
