As Director of Data Analytics and Evaluation, Thomas manages Social Finance’s data insights team to support our public sector partners in data-driven decision making, developing and executing on their data analytics strategy, and building data visualizations and dashboards. Thomas also leads monitoring, evaluation, and learning efforts for outcomes-oriented projects. Thomas provides support throughout a project’s lifecycle—including on project design to ensure measures are clearly defined and aligned to the project’s theory of change; project monitoring to track outputs and outcomes and oversee data analysis; and project learning to interpret results and identify any program adjustments.

Prior to joining Social Finance, Thomas was a Researcher at Mathematica where he led experimental, quasi-experimental, and mixed methods evaluations of social programs in the areas of education, workforce development, the environment, and agriculture. Thomas also led a randomized controlled trial of farmer’s social networks in Malawi for Innovations for Poverty Action.

Thomas has a Master in Public Affairs from the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs and a Bachelor degree in Economics and Government from Wesleyan University.

I'm inspired by my teammates and proud of our work with the public sector to use analytical tools to strengthen service delivery.
