Amanda has been affiliated with CIRGH since she was endowed with a Research Fellowship from the Center in 2021. She currently serves as the Program Officer for the WHO Maternal, Neonatal and Child Health (MNCH) Task Force Initiative, which provides technical and research support to the WHO Inter-Departmental Task Force to Improve Maternal Health. This position and affiliated work will be serving as her doctoral dissertation with the current working title of "Stakeholder perspectives in the development of a minimum data set (MDS) to harmonize safety surveillance systems for improving maternal, fetal and neonatal health (MFNH) in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs)." Her research is firmly nested in the Data Systems Strengthening initiatives at CIRGH, which includes support with the dissemination of findings drawn from the Stakeholder Views on Improving National Health Information Management Systems study. Amanda's research underscores the value of recognizing health data as a global good and the value of enhancing global data systems infrastructure to address key structural equities that serve as barriers to improving MNCH health outcomes. She additionally sits on the Health Data Collaborative's Data and Digital Governance working group.
