I’m currently the Head of Policy and Research Insight at BBC Media Action, an international charity that supports media and communications in development. From 1989-91, I was a staff associate at the  Overseas Development Council, a think tank specializing in First-Third World economic relations. In 2000-2001, I was an International Affairs Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. I spent a year as a Senior Adviser in the Office of International Development at the United States Treasury Department, where I was part of a team that oversaw U.S. lending strategies towards the Multilateral Development Banks. I was also a Term Member at the Council on Foreign Relations from 2001-2005.
