Biography

I began working at the MPC in 2013 after completing my Master of Development Practice degree from the University of Minnesota's Humphrey School of Public Affairs. As a research fellow on NHIS, my role ranges from writing newsletters to keep NHIS users informed about the project, to confirming data quality and preparing for releasing new data.

I am a trained development practitioner with a passion for better understanding the intersection of public health, natural resource use and management, and economic opportunities among marginalized communities. The MPC's emphasis on providing quality microdata resonates with my interest to use available information to enable more effective policy and development initiatives.
