Stuart Campo is a Researcher with the Signal Program on Human Security and Technology at the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI) of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. In this capacity, he supports translational research on humanitarian technologies, standards and ethics, drawing on his ten years of experience as a humanitarian and development practitioner.
Prior to joining the Signal Program, Stuart served as the Senior Innovation Deployment Specialist with UNICEF's Global Innovation Center. In this capacity, he led globally on remote and in-country support to UNICEF and partners in the strategic adaptation and deployment of a range of solutions, including real-time information platforms like RapidPro and U-Report. During his tenure at UNICEF (beginning in 2010), Stuart held extended assignments in Kenya, Madagascar, South Sudan, and supported the design and activation of technological and social innovation initiatives in over 35 countries. Stuart has extensive experience supporting the deployment of innovative solutions that bridge the humanitarian-development divide—supporting national system-strengthening for improved decision-making and results for children at scale. Prior to joining UNICEF, Stuart worked as the Director of Special Projects and Innovation at Straight Talk Foundation—a leading health and development communication NGO in Uganda.
