Hello, I am the Director for Research and Innovation at Busara and am interested in all things research methods and data. I lead the portfolio of experimental research at Busara which is the bridge between academia and consulting, as well as, focus on developing a network of decision labs to contribute to evidence based approaches in the Global South. I also lead development and implementation of creative and innovative research products – at the core of this is exploring what it means for data to be inclusive and how to conduct research that supports the dignity of research participants.
