Trained in the discipline of (social) anthropology, I have spent most of my time working with agrarian and tribal societies in South India. This experience – of working with vulnerable communities and seeing gaps in how programs are implemented, has fuelled my curiosity in unpacking the “what works, why, for whom” question. New to the evaluation space, I hope to apply an anthropological perspective to evaluations that are evidence-based. Am passionate about exploring culturally appropriate evaluation frameworks and place-specific theories to inform program design and evaluation practice. I hold a Master’s degree in Anthropology of Development and Social Transformation (University of Sussex) and a Bachelors in Sociology (University of Delhi). When not at my desk, you can find me climbing a rock, running around with a camera or sitting on the floor with my paints!
