Anna is currently pursuing a PhD at Imperial College London, and is investigating visualisation and communication of hydrological information to support risk reduction and resilience building against natural hazards. She studied for an Msc in Science Communications and Public Engagement, to try and better understand how to best communicate research findings to achieve maximum impact. Anna gained experience in data visualisation and communication whilst working at the UN World Food Programme, and has a long held passion for sustainable development.
Research to Action (R2A) is a website catering for the strategic and practical needs of people trying to improve the uptake of development research, in particular those funded by DFID.
We have structured the site and populated it with material that we think will be immediately useful to this audience, but also to development researchers in general who would like to be more strategic and effective in their communications.
R2A is produced by a small editorial team, led by CommsConsult. We welcome suggestions for and contributions to the site.
