A physicist's adventure at USAID

Prof. John LoSecco
University of Notre Dame
2020 Jefferson Science Fellow in USAID LAP/OI & DDI/ITR/EPIC

This talk is a brief survey of my time at USAID. I have applied quantitative analysis techniques to try to quantify the effectiveness of several programs within the Agency. These include, countering malign influences, surveying field reports on non-permissive environments, summarizing reports, comparing the journey to self-reliance metrics and 5G communications infrastructure. These have helped to identify highlights in USAID’s programs and places where innovations may be effective.
