As a social sciences librarian, I am broadly interested in the use and synthesis of information and data toward the improvement and evaluation of policy, programs and practice. As a former health sciences librarian, I developed expertise in literature searching for systematic reviews and evidence syntheses. I provide methodolical expertise on evidence syntheses across disiplines and contribute to the improvement of evidence synthesis methods through research and capacity-building, both nationally and internationally. I hold a master’s degree in development and international relations. I also enjoy helping students and researchers find data and statistics for social science research and teaching open source writing, collaboration and data analysis tools like Zotero, Open Science Framework and Open Refine.
