In both positions, she developed interests in integrated community-led development projects and gender mainstreaming. While at Yale, Sidney has focused her academics, extra-curriculars, and internship experiences on monitoring and evaluation of global development programs. She is particularly interested in the use of data and mixed-methods analysis to improve the impact of these programs.
