At present I work at the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative where I am coordinating the development of KoBoToolbox, the free and open source suite for field data collection, among other projects. Previously I worked as Information Management Specialist for the United Nations Development Programme for more than three years, including as part of the Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration of former rebels in the Central African Republic, and on Justice Reform activities in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. Private sector experience includes project management work in Guinea at URS in the field of social and environmental impact mitigation. I've been fortunate to conduct other exciting consulting and research work in places such as Cote d'Ivoire, South Africa, Ecuador, Liberia, the West Bank, Kyrgyzstan, and Kazakhstan. I hold a BA in Political Sciences from Jacobs University and an MA in Media Studies from the University of Cape Town, South Africa.
