I'm an expert in conflict data, most recently serving as the Director of Research & Innovation at ACLED (Armed Conflict Location & Event Data Project) where I was part of the senior leadership team, helping to spearhead rapid yet sustainable growth while leading a global, remote team of subject matter experts and technical specialists. There, I oversaw all research, including: real-time event data collection around the world and questions of methodology; data science, including work around early warning / early action; data-driven analysis and risk assessments; and strategic communications, including engagement with media and partners.

 

While at ACLED, I spearheaded the establishment of both ACLED's US portfolio, tracking protest patterns and political violence (especially via far-right actors) across the country; as well as ACLED's gender portfolio, monitoring political violence targeting women, including women in politics.

I bring 15 years of experience, which includes: data-driven research around conflict, political violence, social unrest, humanitarian and social issues, and gender; and supporting the capacity-building of local partners around the world via bolstering data literacy, both in the field and remotely. I've used this experience
to consult on projects for multilateral institutions, development firms, university research centers, and more. I am also on the Board of Trustees for Videre Est Credere.
