Research and evaluation
for global health and our shared environment
Hi! My name is Steven and I’m a public health and evaluation researcher based in Canada and Kenya. My work focuses on measuring and improving the impact of global health programs. I’m also a Credentialed Evaluator with 8 years of experience providing research and evaluation consulting services. If you’d like to work together, please get in touch!
How I can help
My interest in evaluation was shaped by my experiences as an ‘accidental’ evaluator. During my MPH (2013-15), I secured a Mitacs award to lead a 4-month research project in Hanoi, Vietnam. Afterward, I was asked by partners to support an evaluation of the larger program to which my project contributed. I found being able to connect with people, understand their priorities, and inform programs to be an immense privilege.
I continued working in evaluation, both independently and with various consulting firms. Over the years, I have carried out 22 consulting projects on health and other development topics in Canada and globally. I specialize in equity and climate change integration into program planning and evaluation. I completed postdoctoral training in science policy at the Public Health Agency of Canada (2022-23; funded by Mitacs) and doctoral training in public health at the University of Guelph (2017-2022; funded by CIHR).
I have worked with collaborators and clients to publish findings in high-impact journals including One Health, Global Food Security, Environmental Research Letters, and Evaluation. I care about making complex ideas accessible and have co-written complementary research notes, policy briefs, and pieces to popular audiences. My goal is to continue supporting organizations in applying evidence-informed strategies to address global health challenges in equitable and environmentally sustainable ways.
