About My Work
I lead research and analysis to support Oxfam country offices and initiatives on oil, gas and mining transparency. Areas of focus includes securities disclosure regulations in major capital markets, contract transparency, EITI and the application legal, regulatory and operational precedents to the advancements of reforms in Oxfam countries.

Previously, I was the Director of Publish What You Pay United States (PWYP), a coalition of faith-based, human rights, anti-poverty, anti-corruption and development organizations that work together to push for transparency in the payments made by the oil, gas and mining sectors to governments. I led PWYP’s advocacy for improved policies within the US government, multinational companies, and international financial institutions, and to support its work on the Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative. I led PWYP US’s 2010 drive to pass Section 1504/Cardin-Lugar provision of the U.S. Dodd-Frank Act, which requires oil, gas and mining companies registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) to publish their payments to governments as part of their annual reports to the Commission. Previously, I worked for 9 years at the World Resources Institute conducting research with civil society partners on the social and environmental impacts – and benefits - of natural resource extraction.

I was the principal author of People, Power and Pipelines: Lessons from Peru in the governance of gas production revenues and co-authored Breaking Ground: Engaging Communities in Extractives and Infrastructure Projects. She worked with civil society coalitions in the Amazon region, Indonesia, Russia and Central Africa to examine the governance challenges inherent in extractive industries and the forestry sector, and the associated role of corporations and international financial institutions in influencing national and private systems of risk mitigation and management in these sectors.
