Welcome

I am a mixed-method researcher, evaluator, and project manager. I  organize and execute successful projects through the thoughtful combination of data, technology, and collaboration.

Trained as a political scientist, my focal areas include program design and administration; sub-Saharan Africa (governance research); justice sector reform (recidivism reduction); and innovative research design to generate unique data sets.

I also co-edit Small Stones, an online resource for educators and students that aims to foster hope and a sense of agency following the 2016 US election.
