Community Consultation & Research

My expertise lies in qualitative and participatory research. I draw from mixed research methods when working with communities to account for the perspectives of all those affected and involved. I have experience developing and using diverse research tools that include surveys, questionnaires, key informant interviews (in person and on the phone), focus groups, body and community mapping, World Cafés, and literature and service reviews. Recent research work includes:
