Director of Impact, Medic Mobile

Biography

Amanda is Medic Mobile's Director of Impact. She determines what metrics to measure across Medic's project implementations and builds systems to accomplish it. Amanda is passionate about leveraging data to design and scale technologies and workflows that have increasingly greater impact in the communities in which we work. Using principles of Human Centered Design, she also leads the organization's efforts in piloting new use cases. Previously, Amanda spearheaded the organization's data visualization efforts, designing and building dashboards to support operational decision making and impact monitoring for CHWs, clinics, and ministries of health.

While working at MIT Lincoln Laboratory, Amanda became passionate about using mobile data collection for information and decision support during a disaster. After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, she led the analysis on a large, multi-sector needs assessment and saw firsthand how access to real-time quantitative information could enhance aid distribution and prioritization decisions. Since then, Amanda has found a new passion in applying a similar philosophy to health systems, using access to information and communication to positively influence health outcomes. She has worked with Partners In Health to design and implement an mHealth system to manage a cholera vaccination campaign in rural Haiti. Amanda studied applied physics and astronomy at Cornell University.
