Muchiri has more than 20 years of experience working on software development and technology innovation for those living on irregular income in Africa, online strategy for African organizations, and public policy implementation for development data. His background in innovation consulting has allowed him to bring the same multi-disciplinary approach LDRI does to our project to support African governments in implementing programs to achieve the Malabo commitments. His experiences include: leading the inaugural cohort of the Code4Kenya Fellowship in 2012; serving as deputy director at the Open Institute Trust based in Nairobi, Kenya; acting as co-founder and executive director of the Local Development Research Institute (LDRI) in Nairobi; leading the LDRI in co-convening — together with the Government of Kenya and the Partnership for African Social and Governance Research — the first national Forum on Harnessing the Data Revolution for Sustainable Development, which resulted in the launch of the National Partnership on Sustainable Development Data. Muchiri has a diploma in computer studies and is an expert in user-centered design, workshop facilitation, and open data strategy. He speaks English, Swahili and Kikuyu.
