I’m an independent consultant with 10+ years of qualitative research, policy analysis, and program evaluation experience.
My research, policy analysis, and evaluations have focused on:
– Child protection and social justice issues that disproportionately affect children and youth.
– The protection of displaced populations and the root causes of displacement in the Americas.
– The analysis and evaluation of child protection policies and programs developed by governments, international agencies, and non-governmental organizations alike in different contexts (middle-income countries, the least developed countries, humanitarian contexts, etc.).
Through my work and research, I make a modest contribution to Latin American critical theory and to more egalitarian societies that uphold the rights of children, adolescents, girls, and women in the Americas.
Since March 2021, I’ve worked as an independent consultant for UNICEF, other international agencies and for non-governmental organizations in the area of child protection. For more information, please visit the ABOUT section.
