Speakers
Johannes von Engelhardt
Johannes is responsible for the monitoring and evaluation efforts of 100WEEKS. Outside of 100WEEKS, Johannes works as an independent researcher and Monitoring & Evaluation consultant in international development and helps to tackle methodology and data issues in challenging environments. He has worked on various research projects in places such as Tanzania, Senegal, Togo, Gaza and Myanmar for different NGOs as well as the World Bank. As a part-time academic, he is teaching statistics and research methods at the University of Amsterdam (PPLE College) and recently completed a Ph.D. dissertation on media coverage of humanitarian disasters at Erasmus University Rotterdam.

Yvonne van Dalen
Yvonne is responsible for the execution of the monitoring and evaluation of 100WEEKS and for the research that will be conducted with the data gathered by 100WEEKS. As 100WEEKS has gathered a lot of valuable data since the start of the program in 2015, many researchers are interested to collaborate. Yvonne is writing a literature review together with the Vrije Universiteit of Amsterdam, to see which research areas should be focused on. Based on these findings she is setting up research projects to learn more about the impact of the program. Besides 100WEEKS Yvonne is also working as a research coordinator for a large cohort study in Amsterdam.
