Hi, I'm Ardyn.
I am a Lecturer (tenure-track) in Program and Policy Evaluation at Carleton University's School of Public Policy and Administration. I am also a member of the Canadian Women Economics Committee, a Research Fellow with the John Deutsch Institute for the Study of Economic Policy, and a member of the One Society Network, an interdisciplinary research institute linking economists and epidemiologists to better understand and manage pandemic threats in Canada. I am a Ph.D. candidate in the Economics Department at Queen’s University in Kingston, Canada (degree expected August 2022).
My research focuses on economic development, education, food security, and gender equality, with a particular interest in how machine learning tools and text mining methods can be used to improve the design and evaluation of development projects and policies.
Since 2017, I have complemented my academic research with my work at Limestone Analytics, where I managed the evaluation of a Girls’ Education Challenge project in Zimbabwe, along with other food security, education, and gender projects around the world.
