Matt is a trusted evaluation advisor with a speciality in data and descriptive statistics. He delivers innovative solutions to complex challenges – including in the aftermath of the Canterbury earthquakes.
Matt joined MartinJenkins in 2015, from a role as monitoring and evaluation advisor for the Canterbury Earthquake Recovery Authority (CERA), where he was a valued supplier of evaluation and monitoring services. His responsibilities ranged from developing monitoring frameworks through to preparing the reports and advice that interpreted that data in meaningful ways for senior management and Ministers.
He has a strong background in community engagement, including electorate office work for a local MP, and a significant personal contribution to the earthquakes clean-up, as one of the core members of the Student Volunteer Army.
Matt is currently coordinating a multi-year mixed-method evaluation of the new post-graduate initial teacher education programme, a high-profile project for the Ministry of Education. He is also contributing to two other multi-year evaluations for the Ministry of Education: for the Partnership Schools Kura Hourua programme, and the Positive Behaviour for Learning Restorative Practice model.
