“Laura is a very driven researcher, involved in a variety of topics around psychology, justice, and health. One of her most impressive skills is her analytical mind that ensures that all projects and efforts are most impactful and meaningful as possible. Her current focus on data science is a good match for this reason, in addition to more policy-oriented research, including Monitoring & Evaluation. We also worked together on a gender audit, where she was able to critically reflect on different processes and procedures and how to offer strategic and feasible recommendations.
