about me | borja santos porras

I was born in Valladolid, Spain.

I am a professional focused on the design, implementation, and evaluation of public policy during the last ten years, with a rich experience in leadership and problem-solving. Thanks to a multidisciplinary background, I have been working designing strategies for better economic growth and innovation with the government of Sri Lanka and the Harvard Center for International Development; carrying out impact evaluations in Perú;  supporting the institutional humanitarian response and disaster risk management of the government of Ethiopia and Ecuador; managing international aid projects at the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs; and working with private companies and the academia in Germany. Currently, I work as an International Consultant for public policy and International Development, I teach as an adjunct professor at IE University and I am director of international expansion at the IMFAHE Foundation.

In my personal website, you can investigate some of my work and initiatives. But you can also explore my photography and writing. I find them powerful tools to influence public policy and social change.

Recently, I finished my two-years Master in Public Administration in International Development at the Harvard Kennedy School, which was highly influential in shaping my skills in public service. Gary Knight has had the most significant impact on my photography, while Diego Fernández Magdaleno has shaped my humanistic perspective.  My family and scout group encouraged me to be a better global citizen.
