As Director of iDE’s research and evidence efforts, Jennifer leads our global impact measurement strategy, designing and implementing evaluations, providing technical support to country offices, developing training opportunities and supporting new business efforts. She began her career developing international programs and partnerships, first at an Argentine start-up and later for the University of North Texas. She's done fieldwork in Asia, Africa, and Latin America, including two years in Costa Rica as a Fulbright-Hays Fellow researching long-term impacts of agriculture and WASH projects hosted by CATIE, an agricultural sciences institute serving Latin America. She's consulted on research design and evaluation for the World Bank in its Development Impact Evaluation (DIME) unit, the Rio de Janeiro Centro de Operações, and several indigenous livelihoods NGOs in Mexico. She has a Ph.D. in political science and international relations from the University of Southern California with specialties in research methods, and international public policy. In her free time, Jennifer loves all things food-related, hiking, amateur photography, singing in choral groups, and being a socially distanced tourist with her active and curious toddler.
