George worked within the university sector for many years, teaching research and statistics and publishing many articles on the uses and abuses of evidence in decision-making. He also worked with many organisations to improve their evidence-based decision-making. He has authored several high-level government evaluation frameworks in areas as broad as disaster recovery and countering violent extremism. He has a particular passion for capability building so that practitioners can become more critical users of evidence to inform their work. Recently, he moved to the Paul Ramsay Foundation as the Evaluation Lead, supporting the Foundation’s mission to break cycles of disadvantage.
