Research and Analysis

 

You need data! Field data. Interviews. Scientific research. Or actual data from the world wide web. Whatever it is, it always takes a lot of time & energy to gather.

You need your data analysed! All those data need to be converted into a few understandable graphs, illustrations, maps or conclusions. No-nonsense and so clear even my grandmother can understand.

I can help you

Because I have:

  • Extensive field work experience.

    I worked in a variety of countries and biomes; My team in the Bolivian forestFrom Dutch wetlands to the Senegalese mangroves, Bolivian rain forest and Malinese semi-desert. I developed many technical skills in sample and data collection, I collected amongst others wood samples, data on soil properties, light indexes and other observational data. I also conducted interviews in local communities, gathering information on household income, livelihoods and their position towards a specific topic. In the field I normally seek local assistance that helps me gathering the data and translating to the local language where necessary.

  • Effcient (scientific) research skills.

    I don’t waste my time. I know where to find information. Depending on the topic, I gather information from scientific or popular sources and distill the essence. I have experience in reading and writing scientific articles (see also my publication), as well as technical reports. I also gather information for stakeholder analysis, biodiversity data, and other input data for e.g. ecological modeling or mapping.

  • Great Background knowledge.

    With a bachelor in Biology, a master degree in Natural Resources Management and several years international working experience, I have a solid background in biology and ecology.  I talk with many experts in the field and always keep updating my knowledge.

  • Strong analytical skills and tools.

    During my education and following working experiences, I developed strong analytical skills. I also learned to work with GIS and different statistical and modeling software such as Stella, Berkely-Madonna, SPSS, Canoco and MVSP. Depending on the data and on your objectives, I can suggest appropriate analysis methods.

  • Clear presentation.

    I really care for presentation. After my analyses are done I always put in the necessary effort to make a report or presentation which clearly conveys the message and is appealing to the eye.

I know how crucial details are if it comes down to data collection and analysis. Remember that I am here to make your life easier. In order to deliver to you the best product possible that exactly answers to your expectations, I always invest in establishing a clear, no-nonsense, open communication.

In addition to her smarts, she is energetic, can think strategically and is not at all afraid to roll her sleeves up and work hard. From field project work to desk based detailed analysis, anything you throw at Anne comes back with positive results. The pleasure part comes from her amazing personality, ready smile, contagious laughter, delightful singing and from watching her tear up a dance floor. A stellar example of someone combining both intellectual and emotional intelligence.” – Marc Maisonneuve, Director NOTS Mali
