From 1993-2009 he was a private consultant on issues of food security, food policy and food aid and undertook more than 50 consultancies for the World Bank, several U.N. agencies and numerous non-governmental organizations and consulting firms. In recent years, he has led or participated in a number of evaluations for the World Food Program, most often in Ethiopia. These have focused on issues of more relevant and timely early warning, more programmatically useful vulnerability assessments, and improving the sustained effectiveness of food aid used in support of longer term food security objectives.
While at FSI he is undertaking to encapsulate these experiences in a book on U.S. Food Aid and its relationships with food security. He is the co-author of The Development Effectiveness of Food Aid- Does Tying Matter? (2006) for OECD/DAC and of numerous reports to WFP, the World Bank and the U.S. government on food aid and food security.
