Steven Lam, MPH (he/him)

I am an independent consultant with five years of professional experience in designing and conducting evaluations. Focal areas include agriculture, food security, education, health, and international development. My goal is to help organizations learn from and improve their programming efforts.

I am also pursuing a PhD in Public Health at the University of Guelph. I am interested in programming at the intersection of food security, climate change, and social equity. Specifically, I am interested in how theory-driven evaluation can better support this development. My research is funded by a CIHR Doctoral Scholarship. 

Sunao is mostly a platform for me to critically reflect on and share insights into my own research and practice. In doing so, I hope it will not only help to improve my work but also provide useful ideas to those wading through similar water. I also share summaries of my publications here to promote accessibility and facilitate the use of knowledge. Because why do applied research if it doesn’t get applied?

If I am not writing it’s likely that I am eating dark chocolate somewhere while struggling not to get it on my fingers.
