As a ghostwriter, I work with authors to bring out the issues they need to communicate. At the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), I wrote a book and two op-eds, one of which is below and was published in the Globe and Mail. The book became an international showcase for IDRC's research into ICT for Development (ICT4D).
Information Lives of the Poor documents the cell-phone explosion in the developing world and its connection to poverty alleviation. Putting a human face to a technical subject, it uses IDRC research to gauge the hardships and successes of those living at the bottom of the poverty pyramid in Asia, Africa and Latin America.
Let's stop this influenza outbreak before it becomes a pandemic

This op-ed appeared in the Globe and Mail during an avian influenza outbreak. I worked with Dominique Charron to make a case against widespread culls and argued for more nuanced solutions to fight against outbreaks, such as farmer compliance and vigilance during the times between emergencies.
