Research and evaluation
for global health and our shared environment
Hi! My name is Steven and I help organizations measure and improve the impact of health, agri-food, and other development programs. To do so, I draw on 8 years of experience applying results-based management, theory-driven evaluation, qualitative research, surveys, and evidence synthesis approaches. I specialize in equity and climate change integration into program planning and evaluation, having conducted doctoral research in this area. Alongside my consulting work, I actively conduct research on related topics. If you are looking for support or would like to collaborate, please get in touch 🙂
How I can help
Design qualitative and quantitative studies to address your research priorities.
Design and carry out evaluations to meet program and organizational goals.
Tell the story of how and why your program or organization works.
I draw on methods and theories from evaluation and social sciences to contribute knowledge in three main areas:
- Designing and implementing One Health strategies
- Integrating climate change within program planning and evaluation
- Adapting and enhancing approaches to evaluation
I hold an MPH (2015) and a PhD in Public Health (2022) from the University of Guelph. My CIHR-funded doctoral research explored strategies for integrating climate change and equity into programs and evaluations, with the aim of contributing to change in environmentally sustainable and equitable ways.
Over the years, I have carried out 22 projects, with a focus on global health, agriculture, food security, and mental health. I value high-quality, ethical evaluation and I hold a Credentialed Evaluator designation from the Canadian Evaluation Society.
I have worked with collaborators to publish findings in high-impact journals including One Health, Global Food Security, Environmental Research Letters, Evaluation, Research Evaluation, and more. I am passionate about making complex ideas accessible and have written complementary research notes, policy briefs, and pieces to popular audiences.
