Angela Heucher began working as an evaluator at DEval in 2019. Before, she was a research associate at the Collaborative Research Center (SFB) 700 “Governance in Areas of Limited Statehood“, funded by the German Research Foundation (DFG) and situated at Free University Berlin and University of Potsdam. As a research associate, she investigated how international organizations perceive diverse country contexts, which opportunities and challenges they see, and how they respond. In this context, she conducted field work in West Africa (Côte d’Ivoire, Niger and Sierra Leone) and at international organizations‘ headquarters. In her doctoral dissertation, she analyzed how international organizations perceive developments in the organizational field of food security governance, e.g. overlap and fragmentation, and which strategies they develop. Angela Heucher holds a BA in social sciences from Heinrich-Heine-Universität Düsseldorf and an MA in political science from Freie Universität Berlin.
