Hi, I'm Ardyn.

 

I am an Assistant Professor 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, 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.

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. I also recently completed my PhD in economics at Queen's University.

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.

I can be reached at me@ardyn.ca or ardyn.nordstrom@carleton.ca.
