Valentina is a consultant in Oxford Policy Management's (OPM) Poverty and Social Protection portfolio with a strong research 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 voice and accountability mechanisms, rigorous and user-focused M&E systems, and integrated data and information management through ‘social registries’ - all applied to the field of social protection and including research and policy design work in Indonesia, Moldova, Mozambique and Zambia. Over the past nine years Valentina has also been involved in several mixed method evaluations of cash transfer programmes. This includes leading an FAO six country qualitative study on the economic and social impacts of cash transfers in Sub-Saharan Africa for the PtoP project and extensive fieldwork in Kenya for the Hunger Safety Net Programme, in South Africa for the Child Support Grant, and in Lesotho for the Child Grant Programme.
