Michael Bamberger, jmichaelbamberger@gmail.com, Independent Evaluation Consultant. 40 years of experience conducting and teaching development evaluation in Latin America, Africa and the Middle East and Asia. Working for the past few years on the opportunities and challenges for integrating data science and development evaluation - with a particular focus on the reasons why most evaluators have been slow to adopt data science approaches, and why many data scientists are not familiar with evaluation practice and theory. Currently working on the evaluation of complex development programs, mixed methods evaluation, gender equality and why evaluators often fail to identify unintended outcomes of the programs they are evaluating.
