Professional title:

Architect, Humanitarian Construction Project Manager at the ICRC

What do you do?

I help engineers from the Central African Republic improve water supplies for people affected by armed conflict.


Working in places off the beaten path, I get to see beyond what's on the news. I love the challenge of helping a team become more effective. That means reading history, management practice, and data analysis; asking lots of questions, and listening.

What should we read?

I Shall Not Hate: A Gaza Doctor's Journey on the Road to Peace and Human Dignity by Izzeldin Abuelaish
