Jeff has led monitoring, evaluation and research projects for humanitarian and development agencies in low- and middle-income countries.
After earning his Master of Public Health degree at Tulane University, he worked in Tanzania, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan and most recently Liberia where he served as the Director of Monitoring, Evaluation, Research and Learning for Last Mile Health. There, his department designed and implemented research with a special focus on access to health services in communities further than five kilometers or an hour’s walk from the nearest health facility. This work was used to improve the Ministry of Health's National Community Health Worker Program.
Jeff is interested in the application of geospatial methods in understanding and targeting inequities in disease burden and healthcare access in remote and other special populations.
