Valentina is a senior consultant in Oxford Policy Management's (OPM) Poverty and Social Protection portfolio with a focus on how delivery systems (e.g design and implementation aspects) can facilitate responsiveness and effectiveness of social protection systems. Her key areas of interest in recent years have been on integrated data and information management, digital identity, voice and accountability mechanisms, and rigorous and user-focused M&E systems - all applied to the field of social protection and including research and policy design work in Indonesia, Moldova, Mozambique and Zambia, among other countries. Over the past 10 years Valentina has contributed to the debate on cash transfers and social protection more widely, including work on EU-SPS and ILO’s TRANSFORM curriculum on building and managing social protection floors in Africa; participation in DFID’s most recent systematic review on the impact of cash transfers (with ODI); leading DFAT’s research on data and information integration in the social protection sector, and; supporting the synthesis and dissemination phase of OPM’s Shock-Responsive Social Protection work.
