Katrina Keegan is the Evaluation Researcher (independent contractor) coordinating the external evaluation of UNHCR's Regional Response to Multiple Emergencies in the Central Sahel Region in Burkina Faso, Niger and Mali. Prior to that, Katrina worked on the multi-country evaluation of UNHCR’s Regional Refugee Response to the Venezuela Situation in Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. For both evaluations, Katrina supported the design, development and implementation of studies using Respondent-Driven Sampling (RDS), a robust and reliable method to sample and estimate hard-to-reach populations. She's also worked with HHI on other recent projects, including mixed-methods research exploring crime perceptions and drivers of criminality in Medellín, Colombia. Her experience in project coordination, evaluation, and mixed-methods research centers on promoting the health, education, rights, and resettlement of displaced individuals within existing community contexts.
