MA Globalization and Development – Institute of Development Studies (IDS); BS Business and Economic Administration
I am a highly motivated, analytical, team player and goal-oriented development professional with many years’ experience. I have contributed to the implementation of development projects and strategies in 20 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America. My experience includes programme design, policy, research, strategy and business development. I am also experienced in the private sector as I have worked for IBM in business operations and consulting roles, and also advising Telefónica Movistar on the development of new mobile services.
In April 2017, I joined CABI as Private Sector Engagement Manager. My work involves: developing and managing CABI’s private sector engagement strategy and portfolio; as well as researching, establishing and managing new partnerships with private sector companies both at the corporate and programme levels.
Since March 2019, I have also worked as the Engagement, Learning & Communication Lead for FCDO’s Commercial Agriculture for Smallholders and Agribusiness (CASA), which is a 5-year, £30 million programme financed by the UK Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office. I am responsible for overseeing, managing and providing quality control to all activities related to stakeholder engagement (investors, governments, donors and other support stakeholders), high-impact research commissioning, development communications and event management of the CASA Programme.
Previously, I worked for Oxfam as a Private Sector Adviser (Livelihoods, Women Empowerment and ICTs). My work involved: leading Oxfam’s participation in mNutrition; leading Oxfam’s work on the use of ICTs for Women’s Economic Empowerment and Care (WE-Care); developing innovative and strategic projects and programs that use ICTs to deliver information and financial services to smallholder farmers; establishing and managing new partnerships with private sector companies across the ICT and agriculture sectors, and developing strategy around private sector engagement.
I am a development economist by training. I graduated in Business and Economic Administration and hold a Masters degree in Globalization and Development from the Institute of Development Studies (IDS).
The vision of the CASA programme is increased global investment in agribusinesses which trade with smallholders in equitable commercial relationships, increasing smallholders’ incomes and climate resilience.
