Organisations hire me to support the strategic development and evaluation of their work. I do this through evaluation, data and learning services.
I have fifteen years’ experience in research and consultancy for national & local government, charitable foundations, service delivery charities & social enterprises, think tanks and others.
I value collaborative working between disciplines, with statisticians, economists, designers and others; and aim for work to be rigorous, engaging and useful. I am experienced in leading teams and rapidly assimilating to new groups as a working member.
