In her most recent role at AidData, she led policy research for clients such as USAID, US Department of State, Germany’s Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development, Hewlett Foundation and the Gates Foundation. Through a project aimed at building the capacity of policy and advocacy organizations to assess their performance, she led partnerships with two African think-tanks to evaluate the impact of their research and engagement. She guided them through the stages of setting objectives, defining key target audiences, developing measurable indicators, designing and implementing a survey instrument, gathering and analyzing data, and using the insights to inform their organizational strategies.
In her previous work with J-PAL in South Asia, she participated in J-PAL’s flagship Executive Education Course workshops on impact evaluation for government officials, civil society and donor organizations in the region. She taught the session on theory of change, providing guidance to several organizations to apply the tools of program evaluation to their own context.
She has taught data visualization to a diverse group of audiences: 150+ PhD students and faculty in Indian universities, 200+ emerging African leaders through the Young African Leaders Initiative (YALI) in the US and to university students in Germany.
