Start date with DI: April 2018

Where I am based: Bristol, UK

What I do: I lead on all of DI’s humanitarian assistance work.

Previous experience: I have recently relocated to the UK after spending almost 20 years working in international development in East and southern Africa, and more recently in Jordan and Iraq. My core experience includes work as a third-party monitoring and verification (M&V) contractor of humanitarian assistance programmes in Somalia, Yemen and Iraq, and as an implementer of livelihoods, special needs education and HIV programmes.
