Experience. Perspective. Vision.
About our founder: Dr. Katia M. Peterson, MPH PhD
The need for high-quality mixed-method research has become clearer than ever before as donors, countries and organizations seek to answer tough questions about complex issues in health-related behavior. Local country offices, traditionally better acquainted with quantitative research, are now under increased pressure to deliver solutions that can only come from the deft application of a mixed method approach. This has created a gap between the funding community’s expectations and the typical in-country team’s capacity to deliver.
In response to the urgent need for lean, focused and financially sustainable mixed method support and training, Dr. Katia M. Peterson founded In Situ. Equipped to provide short-term assistance, project-specific expertise and leading-edge virtual support, In Situ provides a practical alternative to traditional institutions.
With years of experience teaching in both the field and in the university classroom, Dr. Peterson remains driven by a passion for people, for fresh perspectives, and for creative problem-solving. She and the In Situ team continue to seek out new ways to develop and share actionable knowledge that improves lives around the world.
