WHAt we do
Suzan Doornwaard, PhD
I strongly believe in the transformative power of interdisciplinary collaboration and integration of academic, professional, and local expertise to tackle complex societal challenges. As an independent researcher, I am dedicated to delivering high-quality, objective, and reliable research, contributing to a deeper understanding of these challenges through rigorous analysis and evidence-based insights.
My research approach is broad – theoretically, empirically, and methodologically. I have successfully coordinated research projects spanning academic research, participatory and action-oriented studies, monitoring and evaluation efforts, and scientific consultancies. By employing a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods and integrating insights from various disciplines, I address the multifaceted and interconnected nature of today’s wicked problems. I believe that embracing this broad research perspective is vital for grasping the nuances of complex issues and guiding the development of tailored interventions.
