Through my academic education in Geography, Economics and African Studies as well as 12 years of progressively responsible experience in different humanitarian set-ups, I possess a solid foundation of scientific, institutional and practical knowledge in the field of international development cooperation and disaster risk management.
In 2017 I added a Master Degree in Evaluation to my portfolio, intensifying my technical knowledge on evaluation designs, as well as qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis methods.
Over the past years I elaborated, implemented, monitored and evaluated numerous projects for different organizations in over 20 countries. The extensive headquarter, regional and field experience I gained, constitutes the basis for the range of services I provide as a consultant. Among them, the implementation of different evaluation designs, the planning and elaboration of project proposals, as well as other consulting services on different technical subjects, e.g. workshops on monitoring & evaluation.
My organizational, management and problem solving skills are well-structured along priorities and objectives and I analyse complex information efficiently and process it timely in view of deadlines. I have strong team leading skills, but am also able to work independently and flexibly along the existing organizational policies, even in dynamic and challenging environments.
Throughout my previous work, I asserted myself interacting with different stakeholders, such as government authorities, NGOs, donors and the communities themselves. I have excellent communication skills, demonstrated through tailored language, tone and format to match different audiences in a culturally insightful and diplomatic way.
