International development and conflict management practitioner with background in program management and strategic operations for international organizations and agencies. Ten years experience, most working abroad in Africa, covering several sectors.
I have the skills to quickly understand a specific context or project, viewing the program from 10,000 feet and then zooming in to focused, minute details to ensure nothing is left out and to mitigate potential delays in any complex timeline.
Professional experience in several sectors and fields:
- Conflict assessment and security
- Desk and field research
- Humanitarian crisis and response
- International development
- Global Health
Professional work in:
- South Sudan
- The Gambia
