I am a development professional with nearly 10 years of progressive experience in program management, particularly in the fields of strategic communication and knowledge creation. I have worked with leading development organizations of Pakistan, including Population Council, Rural Support Programmes Network and Center for Communication Programs (CCPP). I also have experience of working for all major donor organisations, including GIZ, Packard, Gates, DFID and USAID, among others. I have extensive knowledge of both qualitative and quantitative research methodologies and in basic and applied research. I have represented Pakistan at different international and national forums, i.e. Youth Encounter on Sustainability–Austria in 2009, the Asia Pacific Leadership Program–US in 2016-17 and Pakistan–US Alumni Network. I am also a regular contributor to a bimonthly magazine and monthly e-paper D+C Development and Cooperation that discusses international-development affairs and explores how they relate to fields of policy-making.
