I’m an interdisciplinary social scientist, public health practitioner and multimodal artist who uses mixed methods to gather insights and tell stories about people, services and institutions. I work across the aisle in the design, implementation, evaluation and strategic redesign of complex, big budget domestic and international programs, from start to finish. I particularly enjoy monitoring the research processes along the way. I've previously consulted on projects for The Levi's Foundation, Head Start, the Children's Museum of Manhattan, among others.
My toolbelt includes present and remote forms of observation, interviewing, surveying, archival research and secondary data analysis. I make my own methods when I can't find ones suitable for a given research question; in previous cases I've used methods based in performance, sculpture and video. The joy I get from showing and telling stories has strengthened organizational partnerships, optimized project fidelity and addressed programmatic blind spots.
The current pandemic and social unrest have me thinking about how public health will broaden in scope and play a more central role in regular industry operations to meet the changing needs of clients and employees.
