I am a WASH specialist, with particular skills in sector and programme analysis, focusing on enhancing the enabling environments for sustainable and scaled-up WASH service delivery.
With a background in research and analysis, I have in-depth knowledge of the technical, institutional, political, social and financial issues underlying sustainable and equitable WASH service delivery. I have considerable project management experience and am an excellent facilitator, evaluator and communicator, having engaged with WASH sector actors at all levels.
I gained an MSc in Water Management (Community Water Supply) from Cranfield University, have freelanced for UNICEF, WSA (formerly CREPA), DFID, WHO, WaterAid, IRC and WSUP, and have worked for IRC International Water and Sanitation Centre in The Hague and for WaterAid.
In my early career I worked in medium sized transportation and urban planning consultancies, based in the UK, Hong Kong, Dublin and Wellington (NZ). This gave me a complete grounding in research, project management and advocacy.
I hold dual citizenship in the United Kingdom and the Republic of Ireland; my parent tongue is English; I also have basic and improving French.
