My research activities often combine academic research and practical application. In addition to publishing for an academic audience, I communicate my research findings to other audiences such as policy makers, politicians and interest groups. I also contribute to public debate by offering perspectives on current issues on poverty and social policy.
This page summarizes these activities involving outputs such as technical reports, knowledge mobilization, workshops, and traditional / social media content.
