Bio:

Paul Bolton is a Senior Scientist in the Center for Refugee and Disaster Studies. His main area of expertise is the application of field research methods to low resource countries, specifically the use of mixed methods to conduct needs assessments, design interventions most likely to be locally feasible and effective, monitor and improve interventions in the course of implementation, and evaluate their appropriateness and impact. Dr. Bolton is the primary author of the DIME manual (Design, Implementation, Monitoring, and Evaluation) describing these methods for researchers and program implementers. He and colleagues have developed his approach over the last decade and a half and have used it to conduct program-relevant research with service providers in sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, Central and Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe, the Caribbean, and the Middle East. We also conducts Implementation and Dissemination Research to plan and monitor scale up of programs in low and middle income countries. His main health area of interest is mental health, particularly the common mental disorders of depression, anxiety, posttraumatic stress, and substance abuse.
