Start date with DI: October 2013
Where I am based: Bristol, UK
What I do: As a Strategic Partnership Manager I manage partnerships and projects aimed at increasing the demand, sharing and use of development data. This includes the design and implementation of DI’s programme of engagement, research and technical projects in Nepal aimed at strengthening the data ecosystem to drive more effective development.
Previous experience: Prior to joining DI I was Manager of Programmes at Microfinance Transparency, an organisation that promotes transparency within the microfinance sector through data disclosure, policy advice and training. I have four years’ investment management experience (specialising in socially responsible investments) and a Masters in Leadership for Sustainable Development from the UK think tank Forum for the Future.
