Ruti is a gender and public health specialist with more than a decade of research and programmatic experience in gender equity and violence prevention.
She has worked across multiple sectors—including health, education, parenting, and economic empowerment—with a particular focus on developing and evaluating gender-transformative and male-engagement interventions in low- and middle-income countries.
In recent years, her work has focused on designing and disseminating research (including programme monitoring and evaluation, in-depth qualitative studies, national surveys, and randomised controlled trials) and on ensuring that research findings and lessons learned are shared broadly, targeted to different audiences, and relevant to both programme development and policy advocacy. She is based in Washington, DC, United States, and enjoys food, travel, good conversations, and chasing after her toddler.
